A FOGGY DAY
 
A foggy day in London Town,
Had me low, had me down.
I viewed the morning with such alarm,
British museum had lost its charm.
How long, I wonder, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't past,
For suddenly i saw you there.
And through foggy London town
The sun was shining everywhere.
 
ON A CLEAR DAY
 
On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you'll see who you are
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You'll feel part of
Every mountain, sea and shore,
You can hear from far and near
A world you've never never heard before
And on a clear day
On a clear day
You can see forever and ever
and ever and ever more.
 
SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET
 

Grab your coat and snatch your hat,
leave your worries on the doorstep.
Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street.
Can't you hear that pitter pat
and that happy tune in your step.
Life can be so sweet on the sunny side of the street.
I used to walk in the shade with the blues on parade.
BUT I'M NOT afraid the rover, crossed over.
If I never had a cent I'll be rich as Rockfeller.
The gold dust at my feet
on the sunny side of the street.

I used to walk in the shade with those blues on parade.
But I'm not afraid 'cause the rover, he got over.
If I never had a cent I'd be rich as Rockfeller.
All those chicks 'round my feet,
On the sunny side of the street.

 

THE BREEZE AND I

 

The breeze and I are saying with a sigh

That you no longer care

The breeze and I are whispering goodbye

To dreams we used to share

Ours was a love song

that seemed constant as the moon

Ending in a strange, mournful tune

And all about me,

they know you have departed without me

And we wonder why,

the breeze and I

The breeze and I

 
MOON RIVER
 
Moon river, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style, some day.
Oh, dream maker,
you heart breaker,
Wherever you're goin',
I'm goin' your way.
Two drifters, off to see the world,
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waitin' 'round the bend,
My huckleberry friend,
Moon river, and me!

BLUE SKIES
 
1) I was blue, just as blue as I could be
Ev'ry day was a cloudy day for me
Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore (chorus)

CHORUS:
 
Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see
Bluebirds
Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long
Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly
Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on



2) I should care if the wind blows east or west?
I should fret if the worst looks like the best?
I should mind if they say it can't be true?
I should smile, that's exactly what I do!
(chorus)

AUTUMN LEAVES
 
The falling leaves
Drift by the window
The autumn leaves
Of red and gold
I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold
Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song
But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall

 
STORMY WEATHER
 
Don?t know why
There?s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain?t together
Keeps raining all of the time
Oh yeah life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, stormy weather
And I just can't get my poor self together
Oh I?m weary all of the time
The time, so weary all of the time
When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
Oh yeah if he stays away
Old rocking chair's gonna get me
All I do is pray
The Lord will let me
Walk in the sun once more
Oh I can't go on, can't go on, can't go on
Everything I have is gone
Stormy weather, stormy weather
Since my man and I, me and my daddy ain?t together
Keeps raining all of the time
Oh, oh, keeps raining all of the time
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah raining all of the time
Stormy stormy
Stormy weather
 
LET IT SNOW
By Sammy Cahn.

_______________________________________________________

Oh the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we've no place to go,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

_______________________________________________________

It doesn't show signsof stopping,

And I've bought some corn for popping,

The lights are turned way down low,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

_______________________________________________________

When we finally kissgoodnight,

How I'll hate going out in the storm!

But if you'll really hold me tight,

All the way home I'll be warm.

_______________________________________________________

The fire is slowly dying,

And, my dear, we're still goodbying,

But as long as you love me so,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

SUMMERTIME
Geirge Gershwin
 
Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high
Oh, Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry
One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky
But until that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mammy standing by
Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry
 
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
 
Rogers and Hammerstein
 
When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At he end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.
