AROUND THE WORLD.
 
Around the world I've searched for you
I traveled on when hope was gone to keep a rendezvous
I knew somewhere, sometime, somehow
You'd look at me and I would see
the smile you're smiling now
It might have been in County Down
Or in New York, in gay Paree , or even London town
No more will I go all around the world
For I have found my world in you
It might have been in County Down
Or in New York, in gay Paree , or even London town
No more will I go all around the world
For I have found my world in you.
 
[repeat song] 

AT THE HOP
 
BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA, At the Hop!
 
1 & 3)

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
You can slop and you can stroll it at the hop
When the record starts spinnin'
You chalypso when you chicken at the hop
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop

CHORUS: Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop (oh baby)
Let's go to the hop (oh baby)
Let's go to the hop
Come on, let's go to the hop

2 & 4)

Well, you can swing it you can groove it
You can really start to move it at the hop
Where the jockey is the smoothest
And the music is the coolest at the hop
All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop!

 

BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA
BA BA BA BA, At the Hop!

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

BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS:
 

*******************************************************

1) In 1814 we took a little trip

Along with Col. Jackson down the Mighty Mississip.

We took a little bacon

And we took a little beans

And we caught the Bloody Brittish

In the Town of New Orleans. (Chorus)

____________________________________________________

CHORUS:

We fired our guns and the Brittish kept a comin'

There wasn't quite as many as there was awhile ago.

We fired once more and they went a runnin'

Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico!

____________________________________________________

2) We looked down a river to see the Brittish come

And there must of been a hundred of them

Beatin' on their drums

We stood real high

While we heard their bugles ring;

And we stood beside our cotton fields.

And didn't say a thing. (Chorus)

____________________________________________________

3) Old Hickory said we cantake them by surprise

If we didn't fire our muskets

'til we looked them in the eyes.

We held our fire

'til we see there faces swell,

And we opened up our squirrel guns

And really gave them--WELL WE... (Chorus)

___________________________________________________

Yea they ran through the briar

And they ran through the gravel

And they ran to the places

Where a rabbit wouldn't go.

They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch them

Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico!

____________________________________________________

4) We fired our cannons

'til the barrels melted down;

So we grabbed an alligator

And we fought another round.

We filled his head with cannonballs

And powdered his behind;

And when we touched the powder off

THE GATOR LOST HIS MIND (Chorus)

****************************************************

Yea they ran through the briars......

____________________________________________________

Hup, two, three, four,

Sound off three, four......

[Keep repeating & fade out.]

LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND.

On a day like today
We passed the time away
Writing love letters in the sand
How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand

You made a vow that you would ever be true
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you

Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand
Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand

HELLO YOUNG LOVERS.
 
Hello young lovers, whoever you are,
I hope your troubles are few.
All my good wishes go with you tonight,
I've been in love like you.
Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star,
Be brave and faithful and true,
Cling very close to each other tonight.
I've been in love like you.
I know how it feels to have wings on your heels,
And to fly down the street in a trance.
You fly down a street on the chance that you meet,
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/o/oscar-hammerstein-lyrics/hello-young-lovers-lyrics.html |]
And you meet--not really by chance.
Don't cry young lovers, whatever you do,
Don't cry because I'm alone;
All of my memories are happy tonight,
I've had a love of my own.
I've had a love of my own, like yours-
I've had a love of my own.
 
I know how it feels to have wings on your heels,
And to fly down the street in a trance.
You fly down a street on the chance that you meet,
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/o/oscar-hammerstein-lyrics/hello-young-lovers-lyrics.html |]
And you meet--not really by chance.
Don't cry young lovers, whatever you do,
Don't cry because I'm alone;
All of my memories are happy tonight,
I've had a love of my own.
I've had a love of my own, like yours-
I've had a love of my own.



LOLLIPOP.
 
CHORUS: Lollipop Lollipop
Oh Lolli Lolli Lolli
Lollipop Lollipop
Oh Lolli Lolli Lolli
Lollipop Lollipop
Oh Lolli Lolli Lolli
Lollipop
 
1 ) Call my baby Lollipop
Tell you why
'Cause he's sweeter than an apple pie
And when he does'nt shake he rock and dance
Man I haven't got a chance
I call him [chorus]

2 & 4) Sweeter than candy on a stick
Huckle berry, cherry, or rye
If you have a choice you fill your pick
But Lollipop is mine... [chorus]

 
 
3) Crazy way he thrills me
Tell you why
Just like a lightning from the sky
He loves to kiss me
'Till I can't see straight
GEE, my Lollipop is great!
I call him... [chorus]

[Repeat chorus twice after 4th verse.]

LOVE ME TENDER.
 
1) Love me tender,
Love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

2) Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I love you,
And I always will.

3) Love me tender,
Love me long,
Take me to your heart.
For it's there that I belong,
And we'll never part.

4) Love me tender,
Love me dear,
Tell me you are mine.
I'll be yours through all the years,
Till the end of time.

BYE BYE LOVE.
 
CHORUS:
 
Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

1) There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been [chorus]


I

P.S. I LOVE YOU.
 
Dear, I thought I drop a line
The weather is cool
The fooks 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 Brown's just as soon as you're able
They came around to call
And not burn a hole in the dining room table
Now let me think; I guess that's all
Nothing else for me to say
And so I'll close, but by the way
Everybody's thinking of you
P.S. I love you
 
TAMMY
 
1) I hear the cottonwoods whisprin above
Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love.
The ole hootie owl hootie-hoos to the dove
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.
Does my darling feel what I feel
When he comes near.
My heart beats so joyfully
You'dthink that he could hear.
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.

2) Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, you and I know
Tammy, Tammy, can't let him go.
The breeze from the bayou keeps murmuring low
Tammy, Tammy, You love him so.
When the night is warm, soft and warm
I long for his charms.
I'd sing like a violin
If I were in his arms
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of.
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.
 
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love.


THE 12th OF NEVER.
 
You ask how much I need you, must I explain?
I need you, oh my darling, like roses need rain.
You ask how long I'll love you; I'll tell you true:
Until the twelfth of never, I'll still be loving you.
Hold me close, never let me go.
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow.
I'll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom;
I'll love you till the clover has lost its perfume.
I'll love you till the poets run out of rhyme,
Until the twelfth of never and that's a long, long time.

Hold me close, never let me go.
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow.
I'll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom;
I'll love you till the clover has lost its perfume.
I'll love you till the poets run out of rhyme,
Until the twelfth of never and that's a long, long time.
Until the twelfth of never and that's a long, long time.
