The Nearness of You

It's not the pale moon that excites me


That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you
It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you
When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true
I need no soft lights
To enchant me
If you'll only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you
Stars Fell on Alabama

We lived our little drama


We kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I can't forget the glamour
Your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I never planned in my imagination
A situation so heavenly
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center just you and me, dear
My heart beat like a hammer
My arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night
Dream a Little Dream of Me

Stars shining bright above you


Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me
Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me
Stars fading but I linger on dear
“Oh how you linger on?”
Still craving your kiss “How you crave my kiss?”
I'm longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this
“Give me a little kiss”
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me
Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this
Sweet dreams,
(dreaming) till sunbeams find you
Keep dreaming leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
You gotta make me a promise, promise to me
You'll dream, dream a little of me
Under a Blanket of Blue

Under a blanket of blue


Just you and I beneath the stars
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
The night is ours
Under a blanket of blue
Let me be thrilled by all your charms
Darling, I know my heart will dance
Within your arms
A summer night's magic
Enthralling me so
The night would be tragic
If you weren't here to share it my dear
Covered with heaven above
Let's dream a dream of love for two
Wrapped in the arms of sweet romance
Under a blanket of blue
Moonlight in Vermont

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves of a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont
Icey finger waves
Ski trails on a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont
Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet, in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely
Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
You and I and moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont
Love Is Here to Stay

It’s very clear, our love is here to stay


Not for a year, but forever and a day
The radio and the telephone,
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies
And in time may go
But, oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay
Let's Do It
When the little bluebird
Who has never said a word
Starts to sing ”Spring, spring”
When the little bluebell
In the bottom of the dell
Starts to ring “Ding, ding”
When the little blue clerk
In the middle of his work
Starts a tune to the moon up above
It is nature, that's all
Simply telling us to fall in love
Oh yes
And that's why birds do it
Bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Oh the Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it
Just think of Siamese twins
Some Argentines, without means, do it
People say, in Boston, even beans do it, mmm
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters, down in Oyster Bay, do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Cold Cape Cod clams, ‘gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ‘em, I know
Why ask if shad do it?
Waiter, bring me shad roe
In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish, in the privacy of bowls, do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Oh the dragonflies, in the reeds, do it
Sentimental centipedes do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Mosquitoes, heaven forbid, do it
So does ev'ry katydid do it?
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
The most refined lady bugs do it
When a gentleman calls
Moths in your rugs, do it
What's the use of moth balls?
Locusts in the trees do it
Why even the bees do it
Even overeducated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
I’d say the chimpanzees, in the zoos, do it
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
I'm sure giraffes, on the sly, do it
Heavy hippopotami do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Old sloths who hang down from the twigs do it
Though the effort is great
Sweet guinea pigs do it
Buy a couple and wait
Now the world admits
Bears in the pits do it
Even Pekineses in the Ritz, do it
Let's do it, mama let's fall in love
Would You Like to Take a Walk

“Louis, Louis put down that horn”


“Don't you ever get tired?”
“Well, deep down in my heart baby I don't”
“But what's on your cute little mind now?”
Mm, would you like to take walk?
“Why not babes”
Mm, do you think it's gonna rain?
“Oh, not in California”
Mm, how about a sarsaparilla?
“Straight babes”
Gee, the moon is yellow
Somethin' good will come from there
Mm, have you heard the ladies song?
Mm, it's very pretty strange
Mm, do you feel a little thrilly?
Gee, it's gettin' chilly
Something good will come from there
When you're strollin' through the waysis
You need a hoozes to lean upon
But when you have noses to hug and what is,
gosh darn
Mm, would you like to take a walk?
Mm, do you think it's gonna rain?
Mm, ain't you sick of television?
I'd much rather go fishin'
Something good will come from there
Mm, I sure like that kind of talk
Mm, better take a walk
Mm, Can you play another song?
This record's gettin' long
So cut out the talk
Honey, we better take a walk
Something good will come from there
Isn't This a Lovely Day

The weather is fright'ning


The thunder and lightning
Seem to be having their way
But as far as I'm concerned
It's a lovely day
The turn in the weather
Will keep us together
So I can honestly say
That as far as I'm concerned
It's a lovely day
And everything's O.K.
Yes, isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain
You were going on your way
Now you've got to remain
Yes, just as you were going
Leaving me all at sea
The clouds broke
They broke and oh
What a break for me
I can see the sun up high
Tho' we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm
Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Baby, long as I can be with you
It's a lovely day
Autumn in New York

Autumn in New York


Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first nighting
Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
They're making me feel I'm home
It's autumn in New York
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in New York
Is often mingled with pain
Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands
It's autumn in New York, It's good to live it again
Autumn in New York
The gleaming rooftops at sundown
Oh, autumn in New York
It lifts you up when you run down
Yes, jaded rogues and gay divorcees
Who lunch at the Ritz
Will tell you that it's divine
This autumn in New York
Transforms the slums into Mayfair
Oh, autumn in New York
You'll need no castles in Spain
Yes, lovers that bless the dark
On the benches in Central Park
Greet autumn in New York
It's good to live it again
Tenderly

The evening breeze


Caressed the trees, tenderly
The trembling trees
Embraced the breeze, tenderly
Then you and I
Came wandering by
And lost in a sigh
Were we
The shore was kissed
By sea and mist, tenderly
I can't forget
How two hearts met, breathlessly
Your arms opened wide
And closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love, so tenderly
The evening breeze
Erased the trees, tenderly
The trembling trees
Embraced the breeze, tenderly

I Got a Guy

Cuba's got plenty of sugar


China's got plenty of tea
Morgan's got plenty of something I like
But none of those things bother me
I'll tell you why, I'll tell you why
I got a guy
Doesn't have any money
But to me he's a honey
For he's mine and I think he's too divine
I got a guy
When he starts in to pet me
He can't thrill and upset me
He's the kind that you can't keep of your mind
I got a guy and he's tough
He's just a gem in the rough
But when I polish him up
I swear, he'll be a Tiffany solitaire
I'm riding high
And I'm happy and carefree
There is nothing can scare me
'Cause I got a guy
I'm riding high
And I'm happy and carefree
There is nothing can scare me
I got a guy
I Hadn’t Anyone Till You

I hadn't anyone
Till you
I was a lonely one
Till you
I used to lie awake and wonder
If there could be
A someone in this wide world
Just made for me
And now I see
I had to save my love
For you
I never gave my love
Till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it
Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone
Till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it
Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone
Till you
Please Be Kind

This is my first affair


So please be kind
Handle my heart with care
Oh please be kind
This is all so grand
My dreams are on parade
If you'll just understand
They’ll never, never fail
So tell me your love's sincere
Oh please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear
Oh please be kind
Cause if you leave me dear I know
My heart will lose its mind
If you love me
Please be kind
Tell me your love's sincere
Oh please oh please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear
Oh please be kind
Cause if you leave me dear
I know my heart will lose its mind
If you love me
Please be kind
Somehow the feel I feel is new
I never love till I love you
If you love me please be kind
Please be kind
How Long Has This Been Going On?

I could cry salty tears


Where have I been all these years?
Little wow, tell me now
How long has this been going on?
There were chills up my spine
And some thrills I can't define
Listen sweet, I repeat
How long has this been going on?
Oh, I feel that I could melt
Into Heaven, I'm hurled
I know how Columbus felt
Finding another world
Kiss me once, then once more
What a dunce I was before
What a break, for Heaven's sake
How long has this been going on?
Let me dream that it’s true
Kiss me twice, then once more
That makes thrice, let’s make it four
What a break, for heaven sake
How long has this been going on?
With a Song in My Heart

Though I know that we meet every night


And we couldn't have changed since the last time
To my joy and delight
It's a new kind of love at first sight
Though it's you and it's I all the time
Every meeting's a marvelous pastime
You're increasingly sweet
So whenever we happen to meet
I greet you with a song in my heart
I behold your adorable face
Just a song at the start
But it's soon is a hymn to your grace
When the music swells
I'm touching your hand
It tells that you're standing near, and
At the sound of your voice
Heaven opens its portals to me
Can I help but rejoice
That a song such as ours came to be
But I always knew
I would live life through
With a song in my heart for you
Baby, What Else Can I Do?

Life has a crazy pattern


And fortune comes to few
I'd like to take the pattern
And fashion it for you
Though there may be lean while
Darling, in the meanwhile
I'll give you my love
I'm sure that love will see us through
Baby, baby, what else can I do?
If you want the moon
I'll bring the moon right down to you
Baby, baby, what else can I do?
Someday we'll live in a mansion
Out where the pastures are green
But even in a small room
Just a little hall room
You'll be the king, I'll be the queen
So, please, take my heart
Just for a start till dreams come true
Baby, baby, what else can I do?
Someday we'll live in a mansion
Out where the pastures are green
But even in a small room
Just a little hall room
You'll be the king, I'll be the queen
So, please, take my heart
Just for a start till dreams comes true
Baby, baby, what else can I do?
I've Got a Crush on You

Hmm I've got a crush on someone


Guess who
I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All day and night time give me sign
I never had the least notion
That could fall with so much emotion
Could you coo, could you care
For a cunning cottage, we could share
The world will pardon my mush
'Cause I've got a crush my baby on you
How glad the million ralish from millionaires to carish
Would be to capture me
But you had such persistence,
you wore down my resistance
I fell and it was swell
You're my big and brave and handsome Romeo
How I won you I shall never, never know
It's not that you're attractive
But, oh, my heart grew active
When you came into view
I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and night-time give me sigh
I never had the least notion that
I could fall with so much emotion
Could you coo, could you care
For a cunning cottage, we could share
The world will pardon my mush
'Cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you
My Melancholy Baby

Come to me, my melancholy baby


Cuddle up and don't be blue
All your fears are foolish fancy, maybe
You know, dear, that I'm in love with you
Every cloud must have a silver lining
Wait until the sun shines through
Cuddle up, my dear
While, I kiss away each tear
Or else, I shall be melancholy too
Every cloud must have a silver lining
Wait until the sun shines through
Please cuddle up, my dear
While I kiss away each tear
Or else, I shall be melancholy too
Wait Till You See Him

Wait till you see him


See how he looks
Wait till you hear him laugh
Painters of paintings
Writers of books
Never could tell the half
Wait till you feel
The warmth of his glance,
Pensive and sweet and wise
All of it lovely
All of it thrilling
I’ll never be willing to free him
When you see him
You won’t believe your eyes
You won’t believe your eyes
You’re My Thrill

I've been 'neath the moon before


Held by the charms
Of other arms
I heard love's tune before
And it used to bore me
'Till you stood before me
You're my thrill
You do something to me
You send chills right through me
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill
You're my thrill
How my pulse increases
I just go to pieces
When I look at you
'Cause you're my thrill
Hmm
Nothing seems to matter
Hmm
Here's my heart on a silver platter
Where's my will
Why this strange desire
That keeps mounting higher
When I look at you
I can't keep still
You're my thrill
Misty

Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty the moment you're near
Can't you say that you're leading me on?
And it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost?
That's why I'm following you
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone?
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty
And too much in love
Too misty
And too much in love
What Is There To Say

Darling, pardon my confusion


But are you an optical illusion?
And if not, then what on earth are you doing to me?
If my speech is willy-nilly
It's because I cannot guild the lilly
I should love to sing your praises
But phrases and words are silly
What is there to say?
And what is there to do
The dream I've been seeking
Has practically speaking come true
What is there to say?
And how will I pull through
I knew in a moment
Contentment and wholement, just you
You are so lovable, so livable
Your beauty is just unforgivable
You're made to marvel at
And words to that effect
So what is there to say?
And what is there to do
My heart's in a deadlock
I'd even face wedlock with you
I knew in a moment contentment
And home meant just you, so
What is there to say?
And what is there to do?
My heart's in a deadlock;
I'd even face wedlock with you
Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

After one whole quart of brandy


Like a daisy I'm awake
With no Bromo-Seltzer handy
I don't even shake
Men are not a new sensation
I've done pretty well I think
But this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink
I'm wild again beguiled again
A simpering whimpering child again
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
Couldn't sleep and wouldn't sleep
When love came and told me I shouldn't sleep
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
Lost my heart but what of it
He is cold I agree
He can laugh but I love it
Although the laugh's on me
I'll sing to him each spring to him
And long for the day when I'll cling to him
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
He's a fool and don't I know it
But a fool can have his charms
I'm in love and don't I show it
Like a babe in arms
Love's the same old sad sensation
Lately I've not slept a wink
Since this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink
I've sinned a lot I'm mean a lot
But I'm like sweet seventeen a lot
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
I'll sing to him each spring to him
And worship the trousers that cling to him
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
When he talks he is seeking
Words to get off his chest
Horizontally speaking he's at his very best
Vexed again perplexed again
Thank God I can be oversexed again
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - am I
Wise at last my eyes at last
Are cutting you down to your size at last
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - no more
Burned a lot but learned a lot
And now you are broke so you earned a lot
Bewitched bothered and bewildered - no more
Couldn't eat was dyspeptic
Life was so hard to bear
Now my heart's antiseptic
Since you moved out of there
Romance finis your chance finis
Those ants that invaded my pants finis
Bewitched bothered and bewildered no more
I'm Getting Sentimental over You

Never thought I'd fall, but now I hear love call


I'm getting sentimental over you
Things you say and do
Just thrill me through and through
I'm getting sentimental over you
I thought I was happy
I could live without love
Now I must admit, love is all I'm thinking of
Won't you please be kind
And just make up your mind
That you'll be sweet and gentle
Be gentle with me
Because I'm sentimental over you
Imagination

Imagination is funny
It makes a cloudy day sunny
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?
Oh, well
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
Russian Lullaby

Every night you'll hear her croon


A Russian lullaby
Just a little plaintive tune
When baby starts to cry
Rock-a-bye my baby
Somewhere there may be
A land that's free for you and me
And a Russian lullaby
