1. Let’s Face The Music And Dance
(Irving Berlin)

 
There may be trouble ahead

So while there’s moonlight

And music and love and romance

Let’s face the music ...


There may be trouble ahead

So while there’s moonlight

And music and love and romance

Let’s face the music and dance


Before the fiddlers have fled

Before they ask us to pay the bill

And while we still have the chance

Let’s face the music and dance


Soon we’ll be without the moon

Humming a different tune and then


There may be teardrops to shed

So while there’s moonlight

And music and love and romance

Let’s face the music and dance

Let’s face the music and dance

Soon we’ll be without the moon

Humming a different tune and then


There may be teardrops to shed

So while there’s moonlight

And music and love and romance

Let’s face the music and dance

Let’s face the music and dance

2. Mona Lisa

(Jay Livingston/Ray Evans)

 

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you

You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile

Is it only ’cause you’re lonely they have blamed you

For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?


Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?

Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?

Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep

They just lie there and they die there

Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?

Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?


Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?

Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?

Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep

They just lie there and they die there

Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?

Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?

3. I've Got You Under My Skin

(Cole Porter)

 

I’ve got you under my skin

I’ve got you deep in the heart of me

So deep in my heart

That you’re really a part of me

I’ve got you under my skin


I’ve tried so not to give in

I’ve said to myself this affair

Never will go so well

But why should I try to resist

When baby will I know so well

That I’ve got you under my skin


I’d sacrifice anything come what might

For the sake of having you near

In spite of a warning voice

That comes in the night

And repeats, repeats in my ear


Dont you know you fool

There ain’t no chance to win

Use your mentality

Wake up to reality

But each time I do

Just the thought of you

Makes me stop before I begin

’Cause I’ve got you under my skin

4. All The Way

(Jimmy van Heusen/Sammy Cahn)

 

When somebody loves you

Its no good unless he loves you

All the way

Happy to be near you

When you need someone to cheer you

All the way

 

Taller than the tallest tree is

That’s how its got to feel

Deeper than the deep blue see is

That’s how deep it goes if it’s real

 

When somebody needs you

Its no good unless he needs you

All the way

Through the good or lean years

And for all those in between years

Come what may

 

Who knows where the road will lead us

Only a fool would say

But if you let me love you

It’s for sure I’m gonna love you

All the way

All the way

5. The Lady Is A Tramp

(Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart)

 

She gets too hungry for dinner at eight

She loves the theatre but doesn’t come late

She never bothers with people she hates

That’s why the lady is a tramp

 

Doesn’t like dice games with barons and earls

Won’t go to harlem in ermine and pearls

Won’t dish the dirt with the rest of those girls

That is why the lady is a tramp

 

She loves the free, cool wind in her hair

Life without a care

She’s broke but it’s oke

She hates california, it’s cold and it’s damp

That’s why the lady is a tramp

 

She gets far too hungry, babe, wait there for dinner at eight

She adores the theatre but doesn’t ever come late

She’d never bother with anyone she’d hate

That’s why the lady is a tramp

 

Doesn’t like crap games with all those barons and earls

Won’t go to harlem driving Lincolns and Porche

Will not dish the dirt with the rest of those broads

That is why this chick is a tramp

 

She loves the free, fine, wild, knocked-out, cuckoo

Groovy wind in her hair

Life’s without a care

She’s broke but it’s oke

She loathes california, it’s cold and it’s damp

That’s why the lady

That is why the lady

That’s why the lady is a champ!

6. Jailhouse Rock

(Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller)

 

The warden threw a party in the county jail

The prison band was there and they began to wail

The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing

You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

Lets rock

Everybody, lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

 

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone

Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone

The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang

The whole rhythm section was the purple gang

Lets rock

Everybody, lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

 

Number forty-seven said to number three:

You’re the cutest jailbird that I ever did see

I sure would be delighted with your company

Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me

Lets rock

Everybody, lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

 

The sad sack was a sittin’ on a block of stone

Way over in the corner weepin’ all alone

The warden said: Hey, buddy, don’t you be no square

If you cant find a partner use a wooden chair

Lets rock

Everybody, lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

 

Shifty Henry said to Bugs: For heavens sake

No one’s lookin, now’s our chance to make a break

Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said: Nix nix

I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks

Lets rock

Everybody, lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

7. Crying In The Chapel

(Charles Artice Glenn)

 

You saw me crying in the chapel

The tears I shed were tears of joy

I know the meaning of contentment

Now I’m happy with the lord

 

Just a plain and simple chapel

Where humble people go to pray

I pray the lord that I’ll grow stronger

As I live from day to day

 

I’ve searched and I’ve searched

But I couldn’t find

No way on earth

To gain peace of mind

 

Now I’m happy in the chapel

Where people are of one accord

Yes, we gather in the chapel

Just to sing and praise the lord

 

You’ll search and you’ll search

But you’ll never find

No way on earth

To gain peace of mind

 

Take your troubles to the chapel

Get down on your knees and pray

Then your burdens will be lighter

And you’ll surely find the way

8. Viva Las Vegas

(Jerome Pomus & Mort Shuman)

 

Bright light city gonna set my soul

Gonna set my soul on fire

Got a whole lot of money that’s ready to burn

So get those stakes up higher

There’s a thousand pretty women waitin’ out there

They’re all livin’ the devil may care

And I’m just a devil with love to spare so

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

 

How I wish that there were more

Than the twenty-four hours in the day

But even if there were forty more

I wouldn’t sleep a minute away

There’s black jack and poker and the roulette wheel

A fortune won and lost on every deal

All you need’s a stone heart and a nerve of steel

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

 

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin’

And your one arm bandits crashin’

All those hopes down the drain

Viva Las Vegas turnin’ day into nighttime

Turnin’ night into daytime

If you see it once

You’ll never be the same again

 

Im gonna keep on runnin’

Gonna have some fun

If it costs me my very last dime

If I wind up broke

Then I’ll always remember that I had a swingin’ time

Oh, I’m gonna give it everything I’ve got

Lady luck, please let the dice stay hot

Let me shoot a seven with every shot

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

Viva, Viva Las Vegas

9. Before You Accuse Me

(Ellas McDaniel)

 

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

You say I'm spending my money on other women

Taking money from someone else

 

I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago

I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago

She said "Son, don't you call my daughter no more"

 

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

You say I'm spending my money on other women

Taking money from someone else

 

Come back home baby, try my love one more time

Come back home baby, try my love one more time

I don't know if I can quit you

I just might lose my mind

 

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself

You say I'm spending my money on other women

Taking money from someone else

10. Tears In Heaven

(Eric Clapton)

 

Would you know my name

If I saw you in heaven?

Would it be the same

If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong and carry on

’Cause I know I don’t belong here in heaven

 

Would you hold my hand

If I saw you in heaven?

Would you help me stand

If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way through night and day

’Cause I know I just can’t stay here in heaven

 

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees

Time can break your heart, have you begging please

Begging please

 

Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure

And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven

 

Would you know my name

If I saw you in heaven?

Would it be the same

If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong and carry on

’Cause I know I don’t belong here in heaven

’Cause I know I don’t belong here in heaven

11. Superstition

(Stevie Wonder)

 

Very superstitious, writings on the wall

Very superstitious, ladders ’bout to fall

Thirteen month old baby broke the lookin’ glass

Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

 

When you believe in things that you don’t understand

Then you suffer

Superstition ain’t the way

 

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands

Rid me of the problem, do all that you can

Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin’ strong

If you don’t wanna save me, sad is my song

 

When you believe in things that you don’t understand

Then you suffer

Superstition ain’t the way

 

Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say

Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say

Very superstitious

12. Lately

(Stevie Wonder)

 

Lately I have had the strangest feeling

With no vivid reason here to find

Yet the thought of losing you’s been hanging

’Round my mind

 

Far more frequently you’re wearing perfume

With you say no special place to go

But when I ask: Will you be coming back soon?

You dont know, never know

 

Well, I’m a man of many wishes

Hope my premonition misses

But what I really feel my eyes won’t let me hide

’Cause they always start to cry

’Cause this time could mean goodbye

 

Lately I’ve been staring in the mirror

Very slowly picking me apart

Trying to tell myself I have no reason

With your heart

 

Just the other night while you were sleeping

I vaguely heard you whisper someone’s name

But when I ask you of the thoughts you’re keeping

You just say nothing’s changed

 

Well, I’m a man of many wishes

Hope my premonition misses

But what I really feel my eyes won’t let me hide

’Cause they always start to cry

’Cause this time could mean goodbye

Goodbye

 

Well, I’m a man of many wishes

Hope my premonition misses

But what I really feel my eyes won’t let me hide

’Cause they always start to cry

’Cause this time could mean goodbye

13. Sir Duke

(Stevie Wonder)

 

Music is a world within itself

With a language we all understand

With an equal opportunity

For all to sing, dance and clap their hands

But just because a record has a groove

Don’t make it in the groove

But you can tell right away at letter A

When the people start to move

 

They can feel it all over

They can feel it all over, people

They can feel it all over

They can feel it all over, people

 

Music knows it is and always will

Be one of the things that life just won’t quit

But here are some of music’s pioneers

That time will not allow us to forget

Well, there’s Basie, Miller, Satchmo

And the king of all Sir Duke

And with a voice like Ella’s ringing out

There’s no way the band can lose

 

You can feel it all over

You can feel it all over, people

You can feel it all over

You can feel it all over, people

14. It's Not Unusual

(Les Reed/Gordon Mills)

 

It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone

It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone

But when I see you hanging about with anyone

It’s not unusual to see me cry

I wanna die

 

It’s not unusual to go out at any time

But when I see you out and about it’s such a crime

If you should ever wanna be loved by anyone

It’s not unusual

 

It happens every day

No matter what you say

You’ll find it happens all the time

 

Love will never do

What you want it to

Why can’t this crazy love be mine?

 

It’s not unusual to be mad with anyone

It’s not unusual to be sad with anyone

But if I ever find that you’ve changed at anytime

It’s not unusual to find that I’m in love with you

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

15. Green Green Grass Of Home

(Claude Putman Jr.)

 

The old home town looks the same

As I step down from the train

And there to meet me is my mama and papa

 

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

 

Yes, they’ll all come to meet me

Arms reaching, smiling sweetly

It’s good to touch the green green grass of home

 

The old house is still standing

Though the paint is cracked and dry

And there’s that old oak tree I used to play on

 

Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary

Hair of gold and lips like cherries

It’s good to touch the green green grass of home

 

Spoken:

Then I awake and I look around me

At four grey walls that surround me

And I realize, yes, I was only dreaming

For there’s a guard and there’s a sad old padre

On and on we’ll walk at daybreak

Again I’ll touch the green green grass of home

 

Yes, they’ll all come to see me

In the shade of that old oak tree

As they lay me ’neath the green green grass of home

16. When I Fall In Love

(Victor Young/Edward Heyman)

 

When I fall in love

It will be forever

Or I’ll never fall in love

 

In a restless world like this is

Love is ended before it’s begun

And too many moonlight kisses

Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

 

When I give my heart

It will be completely

Or I’ll never give my heart

 

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too

Is when I fall in love with you

 

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too

Is when I fall in love with you

17. That's Life

(Dean Kay/Kelly Gordon)

 

That's life, that's what all the people say

You're riding high in April and then you’re shot down in May

But I know that I'm gonna change that tune

When I'm back on top, back on top in June

 

I said that's life and funny as it may seem

Some people get their kicks stompin' on their dream

But I won’t let that get me down

'Cause I know this ol' world it keeps spinning around

 

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king

I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing:

Each time I find myself flat on my face

I pick myself up and get back in the race

 

That's life, and I ain’t gonna try to deny it

So many times I thought of quitting but my heart just won’t buy it

And if I didn't think it was worth one more little try

I might as well jump on that plane and fly

But I won’t ’cause

 

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king

I've been up and down and over and out and I know this one thing:

Each time I find myself lying flat down on my face

I just pick myself up and I get back in the race

 

That's life, that's life and I can't deny it

So many times I thought of cutting out

But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it

And if I didn’t think it was worth even one more little try

I'm might as well roll myself up into a big ball and die

 

And that’s life!
