All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray,
I've been for a walk on a winter's day.
I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A.,
California dreamin' on such a winter's day....

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
To sing a love song
While we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

While strolling through the park one day
In the merry merry month of May
I was taken by surprise
By a pair of roguish eyes
I was scared but I didn't run away

It's May, It's May, that gorgeous holiday
When every maiden prays that her lad will be a cad
It's mad, it's gay, alive, a lust display

June is bustin' out all over
All over the meadow and the hill
Buds're bustin' outa bushes
And the rompin' river pushes
Ev'ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill

Down by the Old Mill Stream where I first met you
With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too
It was there I knew that you loved me too
You were sixteen, (you were sixteen)
My village queen, (my village queen)
By the Old Mill Stream.

Down the road I look and there runs Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green green grass of home...

Where are you
Cherry red, sweeter than the honeycomb
Sweeter still when we're alone
Cherry red, my cherry red

Turquoise green, greener than the deeper sea
Greener still when she's with me
Cherry red, my cherry red

They bought a souped-up jitney
'Twas a cherry red '53
They drove it down to Orleans
To celebrate the anniversary
It was there that Pierre
Was married to the lovely mademoiselle
"C'est la vie", say the old folks
It goes to show you never can tell

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is "La vie en rose"
When you kiss me, heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see "La vie en rose"

John's in love with Joan
Joan's in love with Jim
Jim's in love with someone
Who's not in love with him
What was meant to be, must be
C'est la vie, c'est la vie
Life's a funny thing
When it comes to love
You don't always conquer
The one you're dreaming of

And ev'rybody knows that Marie
Got it from me

A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She's got it
Yeah baby, she's got it
Well, I'm your Venus
I'm your fire
At your desire

Venus, if you will
Please send a little girl for me to thrill
A girl who wants my kisses and my arms
A girl with all the charms of you

Better run girl,
You're much too young girl.

Little Sister, don't you
Little Sister, don't you
Little Sister don't you kiss me once or twice
Then say it's very nice and then you run
Little Sister don't you do what your big Sister done...

I see flames in your eyes
Damn, they burn so bright
Don't you try to hide it
Sister, sister, sister
Don’t you try to hide it
Sister, sister, sister
Don’t you try to hide it

With the wind in your sails

You came like a comet

Blazing your trail,

Too high
Too far
Too soon

You saw the Whole of the Moon...

He rode a blazing saddle
He wore a shining star
His job to offer battle
To bad men near and far
He conquered fear and he conquered hate
He turned our night into day
He made his blazing saddle
A torch to light the way

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

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

And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind,
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight...

And I'm tellin' you,
It's too late to turn back now,
I believe, I believe, I believe I'm falling in love.

I believe, I believe, I believe I'm falling in love.

Falling in love with love
Is falling for make believe
Falling in love with love
Is playing the fool
Caring too much
Is such a juvenile fancy
Learning to trust
Is just for children in school

Among the human beings, in their designer jeans
Am I the only one who hears the screams
And the strangled cries
Of lawyers in love

What she sees is only what she wants to,

What she has, she thinks is enough

What she does is just look at the good things

And what she is,
Is a woman in Love....

I can see it in your eyes, I can see it in your smile,
You're all I've ever wanted and my arms are open wide,
'Cause you know just what to say, and you know just what to do,
And I want to tell you so much, I love you.

Late at night when the wind is still
I'll come flying through your door,
And you'll know what love is for.
L'm a bluebird, i'm a bluebird
I'm a bluebird, l'm a bluebird
Yeah ,yeah ,yeah.

And where you see clouds upon the hills
You soon will see crowds of daffodils
So keep on looking for a blue bird
And list'ning for his song
Whenever April showers come along

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take those broken wings and learn to fly

All your life,

You were only waiting for this moment to arise....

Dear one the world is waiting for the sunrise
Every little rose bud is covered with dew
And my heart is calling for you
The thrush on high his sleepy mate is calling
And my heart is calling you

If I were King of the Forest, Not queen, not duke, not prince.
My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz.
I'd command each thing, be it fish or fowl.
With a woof and a woof and a royal growl - woof.
As I'd click my heel, all the trees would kneel.
And the mountains bow and the bulls kowtow.
And the sparrow would take wing - If I - If I - were King!

The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun
I walk a road; horizons change
The tournament's begun
The purple piper plays his tune
The choir softly sing
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue
For the court of the crimson king

All kinds of sadness I've left behind me.
Many's the day when I have done wrong.
But I'll be yours for ever and ever.
Climb in the saddle and whistle along.

So come on, I'm the whistler.
I have a fife and a drum to play.
Get ready for the whistler.
I whistle along on the seventh day
Whistle along on the seventh day.

Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

Well now, take down your fishing pole
And meet me at the fishing hole
We may not get a bite all day
But don't you rush away
What a great place to rest your bones
And mighty fine for skipping stones
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade a-setting in the shade
Whether it's hot, whether it's cool
Oh what a spot for whistling like a fool

Holding hands and skimming stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own

'Cause like a princess she was laying there,
Moonlight dancing off her hair.
She woke up and took me by the hand,
She's gonna love me in my Chevy van, and that's all right with me.

Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more..

You led me away from home
Just to save you from being alone

You stole my heart,

And,
that's what really hurts

Oh, where is little Maggie
Over yonder she stands,
Rifle on her shoulder,
Six-shooter in her hand.

How can I ever stand it,
Just to see them two blue eyes,
Shinin' like some diamonds,
Like some diamonds in the sky.

Rather be in some lonely hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine,
Than to see you be another man's darling,
And to know that you'll never be mine.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds....
