It Could Happen to You

God, I LOVE that movie!




Young at Heart - Johnny Burke (Frank Sinatra)

Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you
If you're young at heart

For it's hard you will find
To be narrow of mind
If you're young at heart

You can go to extremes
With impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams
Fall apart at the seams

And life gets more exciting
with each passing day
And love is either in your heart
Or on it's way

Don't you know that it's worth
Every treasure on earth
To be young at heart

For as rich as you are
It's much better by far
To be young at heart

And if you should survive to 105
Look at all you'll derive
Out of being alive

And here is the best part
You've had a head start
If you are among the very
Young at heart

And if you should survive to 105
Think of all you'll derive
Out of being alive

And here is the best part
You've had a head start
If you are among the very
Young at heart...



Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World - Cliff Richard

Oooooo...
Somewhere over the rainbow,
Way up high.
There's a land that I heard of,
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow,
Skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star,
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops.
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow,
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then - oh, why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly,
Beyond the rainbow,
Why, oh, why can't I?

I see trees of green, red roses too.
I see them bloom for me and you.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white.
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,
Are also on the faces of people goin' by.
I see friends shakin' hands, saying "How do you do!"
They're really sayin' "I love you."
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow.
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Someday I'll wish upon a star,
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops.
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow,
Way up high.
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then - oh, why can't I?

Oooooo...



Beyond The Sea - Charles Trenet/Jack Lawrence (Bobby Darin)

Somewhere beyond the sea
somewhere waiting for me
my lover stands on golden sands
and watches the ships that go sailin

Somewhere beyond the sea
she's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
then straight to her arms
I'd go sailing

It's far beyond the stars
it's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
my heart will lead me there soon

We'll meet beyond the shore
we'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
and never again I'll go sailing

I know beyond a doubt
my heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet (I know we'll meet) beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
and never again I'll go sailing

no more sailing
so long sailing
bye bye sailing...



Die Moritat von Mackier Messer - Kurt Weill, Bertholdt Brecht (Marlene Dietrich)

Und der Haifisch, der hat Zähne
und die trägt er im Gesicht
und Macheath, der hat ein Messer
doch das Messer sieht man nicht.

Ach, es sind des Haifischs Flossen
rot, wenn dieser Blut vergießt.
Mackie Messer trägt 'nen Handschuh
drauf man keine Untat liest.

An 'nem schönen blauen Sonntag
liegt ein toter Mann am Strand
und ein Mensch geht um die Ecke
den man Mackie Messer nennt.

Und Schmul Meier bleibt verschwunden
und so mancher reiche Mann
und sein Geld hat Mackie Messer
dem man nichts beweisen kann.

Jenny Towler ward gefunden
mit 'nem Messer in der Brust
und am Kai geht Mackie Messer
der von allem nichts gewußt.

Und das große Feuer in Soho
sieben Kinder und ein Greis -
in der Menge Mackie Messer, den
man nicht fragt und der nichts weiss.

Und die minderjährige Witwe
deren Namen jeder weiss
wachte auf und war geschändet -
Mackie, welches war dein Preis?
Wachte auf und war geschändet -
Mackie, welches war dein Preis?



Falling in Love Again - Hollander and Connelly (Marlene Dietrich)

I’m so tired
Of falling in love
Finding it easier to fall out
Can’t deny it
I feel it inside cupid’s fire
I can’t hide

Chorus:
I’m falling in love again
Ain’t nothing I can do
Falling in love again
Girl this time it’s with you
When I fall
It’s always the same
And I’m so tired
Of playing this game

It’s been so long now
Since I gave up my heart
I’ve kept it locked down
I don’t wanna get it harmed
So let me tell you now
I just want to be sure
That you won’t hurt me
Can you promise me that

Chorus

You got to tell me
If you’re going to break my heart
’cos I don’t wanna take the chance
And if it ain’t true
All it’s gonna be
Is nothing but a poor romance
So give me that promise to hold on
And I’ll never let you go
We gotta have something to go on
I’m letting you know now

Chorus

Falling in love again (repeat)



I Can't Get Started - Ira Gershwin (Ella Fitzgerald)

I've flown around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted, but I can't get
started with you

Around the golf course I'm under par
And all the movies want me to star
I've got a house, a show place, but I get no
place with you

*:
You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you
Scheme, just for a sight of you
Dream, both day and night of you
And what good does it do?

In 1929 I sold short
In England I'm presented at court
But you've got me downhearted, cause I can't get
started with you

(repeat from *)



I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm - Irving Berlin (Ella Fitzgerald)

The snow is snowing and the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
For I've got my love to keep me warm
I can't remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form!
Oh, what do I care if icicles form?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm
Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm
The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm
I can't remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form!
What do I care if icicles form?
Oh-ho-ho, I've got my love to keep me warm
Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm



To You - Benny Davis/ Tommy Dorsey/ Ted Shapiro (Frank Sinatra)

To you I give all of my heart and my love, to you
To you I'll bring sunbeams from heaven above, to you
To me you're an angel and you mean the world to me,
I'll be forever yours,
Your smile made the clouds and the shadows on high take wings.
Your kiss was the real inspiration to greater things.
My dreams I'm so thankful and grateful that they came through,
I owe it all to you.



YOU CAN'T GET A MAN WITH A GUN - Irving Berlin (Doris Day)

Oh, my mother was frightened by a shotgun, they say
Thats why I'm such a wonderful shot.
I'd be out in the cactus and I'd practice all day,
And now tell me what have I got?
I'm quick on the trigger with targets not much bigger than a pinpoint
I'm number one, but my score with a feller
Is lower than a celler, oh you can't get a man with a gun.
When I'm with a pistol, I sparkle like a crystal
yes, I shine like the morning sun,
but I lose all my luster, when with a bronco buster,
oh you can't get a man with a gun.
With a gu-un, with a gu-un, oh you can't get a man with a gun
If I went to battle with someone's herd of cattle
You'd have steak when the job was done.
But, if I shot the herder, they'd holler bloody murder
and you can't shoot a male in the tail like a quail,
Oh you can't get a man with a gun.
I'm cool, brave, and daring to see a lion glaring
when I'm out with my Remington.
But a look from a mister will raise a fever blister
oh you can't get a man with a gun
The gals with umbrellas are always out with fellers
in the rain or the blazin sun
But a man never trifles with gals who carry rifles
oh you can't get a man with a gun.
With a gu-un, with a gu-un, oh you can't get a man with a gun.
A man's love is mighty, he'll even buy a nightie
for a gal who he thinks is fun.
But they don't buy pajamas for pistol packin mamas
and you can't get a hug from a mug, with a slug
oh you can't get a man with a gun.



A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square - Eric Maschwitz, Music by Manning Sherwin (Glenn MIller, Ray Eberley?)

That certain night, the night we met,
there was magic abroad in the air
there were angel's dining at the Ritz
and a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!

I may be right and I may be wrong,
but I'm perfectly willing to swear
that when you turned and smiled at me
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!

The moon that lingered over London town
or puzzled moon, he wore a frown
how could he know we two were so in love?
The whole darn world seemed upside down!

The streets of town were paved with stars
it was such a romantic affair!
And when we kissed and said goodnight
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!

< instrumental break >

The streets of town were paved with stars
it was such a romantic affair!
And as we kissed and said goodnight
a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square!

I know 'cause I was there
that night in Berkeley Square!



So Rare - [writers misplaced] (Gus Arnheim / Guy Lombardo / Jimmy Dorsey / Andy Williams

(So rare, so rare)
(So rare, so rare)

So rare, you're like the fragrance of blossoms fair
Sweet as a breath of air fresh with the morning dew
So rare, you're like the sparkle of old champagne
Orchids in cellophane couldn't compare to you

You are perfection, you're my idea
Of angels singin' the "Ave Maria"
Or you're an angel, I'd breathe and live you
With every beat of the heart that I give you

So rare, this is a heaven on earth we share
Caring the way we care, ours is a love so rare

(So rare, so rare)
(So rare, so rare)

(You are perfection, you're my idea)
(Of angels singin' the "Ave Maria")
Or you're an angel, I'd breathe and live you
With every beat of the heart that I give you

So rare, (so rare) this is the heaven on earth we share (so rare)
Caring the way we care (so rare) ours is a love so rare

(So rare, so rare)
(So rare, so rare)



I'LL BE SEEING YOU - Sammy Fain / Irving Kahal (Billie Holiday, etc.)

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day and through
In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children carrousel
The chestnut trees
The wishing well

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you


*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Sometimes Billie sung the next verse
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Cathedral bells were tolling
As our love sang on.
Was it the spell of Paris,
or just the April dawn?
Who knows if we will meet again,
Love with morning chiming sweet again
