Track Name: Sunny Side of the Street
On the Sunny Side of the Street

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
just direct your feet
to the sunny side of the street

Can’t you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade with my blues on parade
But I’m not afraid...this rover? s crossed over

If I never had a cent
I’d be rich as rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
Track Name: My Heart Belongs to Daddy
My Heart Belongs To Daddy

While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
Cause my heart belongs to Daddy

When some good scout, invites me out
To dine on some fine fin and haddie
I just adore, his asking for more
But my heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, DAAAAD

So I want to warn you laddie
Though I think you're perfectly swell
my heart belongs to Daddy
Cause my Daddy, he treats it so well

Though I'm in love, I'm not above
A date with a duke or a caddie
It's just a pose, 'cause my baby knows
That my heart belongs to daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To cook up some hot enchilada
Though Spanish rice is all very nice
My heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, DAAAAD

If you feel romantic laddy
Let me tell you right from the start
That my heart belongs to daddy
And my daddy belongs to my heart
Track Name: Black Coffee
BLACK COFFEE

I’m feeling mighty lonesome
Haven’t slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink
Black coffee
Love’s a hand me down brew
I’ll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

I’m talking to the shadows
from 1 o’clock to 4
And lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour
Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I’m hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dream’s too dry

Now a man is born to go a lovin’
A woman’s born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I’m moody all the morning
and mourning all the night
And in between it’s nicotine
And not much hard to fight
Black coffee
Feelin’ low as the ground
It’s driving me crazy just waiting for my baby
To maybe come around.
Track Name: I'm Gonna Sit Right Down & Write Myself a Letter
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter.... Ahlert/Young

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you
I'm gonna write words oh so sweet
They're gonna knock me off my feet
A lotta kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say: "I hope you're feeling better"
And sign with love the way you do
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

Je vais m’assoir et m’ecrire une lettre...... Nicole Edwards

Je vais m’assoir et m’ecrire une lettre
Et je vais faire semblant qu’elle vient de toi
Je vais ecrire des mots si doux
Ca va etre plein de bisous
Tu ecris des si bonnes lettres
Heureux mon coeur va etre
Je vais me dire “j’espere que tout va bien”
Et un “je t’embrasse” a la fin
Je vais m’assoir et m’ecrire une lettre
Et je vais faire semblant qu’elle vient de toi
Track Name: We've Got Love
We’ve Got Love...... Nicole Edwards

Don’t worry baby
we’ll get through these trying times
Don’t worry baby
just put your hand in mine
Don’t know where we’re going to
But we got love to see us through

There is sadness baby
there is sadness deep down to the bone
there is sadness baby
but you don’t have to live with it alone
Don’t know where we’re going to
But we got love to see us through

You can cry now baby
You can cry out all your fears
You can cry now baby
and when the flood is over
I will be right here
Don’t know where we’re going to
But we got love to see us through

We’ve got love
We’ve got love to see us through
The sun is gonna shine and the flowers will bloom
Don’t know where we’re going to
Don’t know what we’re gonna do
But we’ve got love
We’ve got love to see us through

Don’t worry baby
we’ll get through these trying times
Don’t worry baby
just put your hand in mine
Don’t know where we’re going to
But we got love to see us through
Track Name: Autumn Leaves - Les Feuilles Mortes
Autumn Leaves

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winters song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

C’est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m’aimais et je t’aimais
Nous etions tous les deux ensemble
Toi qui m’aimais moi qui t’aimais
Mais la vie separe ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
les pas des amants desunis
Track Name: Besame Mucho
Besame Mucho

Besame, besame mucho,
Como si fuera esta noche la última vez,
Besame, besame mucho,
Que tengo miedo tenerte y perderte despues [2X]

Quiero sentirte muy cerca, mirarme en tus ojos verte junto a mí
Piensa que tal vez mañana yo ya estare lejos, muy lejos de ti

Besame, besame mucho,
Como si fuera esta noche la última vez,
Besame, besame mucho,
Que tengo miedo tenerte y perderte despues
Track Name: Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue
Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

Five foot two, eyes of blue
oh what those five foot could do
Has anybody seen my gal

Turned up nose and turned down hose
Never had no other beaus
Has anybody seen my gal

Now if you run into five foot two covered in fur
Diamond rings and all those things
You bet your life it isn't her but
Could she love could she woo
Could she could she could she coo
Has anybody seen my gal
Track Name: Some one to Watch Over Me
Someone to Watch Over Me

There’s a somebody I’m longin’ to see
I hope that he, turns out to be
Someone who’ll watch over me

I’m a little lamb who’s lost in the wood
I know I could, always be good
To one who’ll watch over me

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key

Won’t you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me
Track Name: Sparkin'
Sparkin’ ........... Nicole Edwards

A little spark to light my fire
To reawaken my desire
To make me feel alive then take me higher
A little sparkin’ is gonna do me some good

We’ll plan a little get away, just for us two
some doctor-prescribed lovin’ is what’ll do
and pretty soon I’ll be feeling good as new
A little sparkin’ is gonna do me some good

A little spark to light my fire
To reawaken my desire
To make me feel alive then take me higher
A little sparkin’ is gonna do me some good

If you’re feelin’ low without motivation
Let me give you a little education
Grab your sweetie, take a vacation
A little sparkin’ is gonna do you some good

Sparkin’ in the mornin’, in the afternoon
Sparkin’ in the kitchen, in the living room
Sparkin when you’re listening to this tune
Sparkin’ is gonna do you some good

Well, the world is way too full of anger
Grumpy people acting like strangers
Don’t they know that love is the answer
A little sparkin’ is gonna do them some good

A little spark to light their fire
To reawaken their desire
To make them feel alive then take them higher
A little sparkin’ is gonna do them some good

Love is the answer
Love is the answer
A little sparkin’ is gonna do us some good
Track Name: La Vie en Rose
La vie en rose

Des yeux qui font baiser les miens,
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voila le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.
Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ca me fait quelque chose.
Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.
C'est lui pour moi. Moi pour lui
Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a jure pour la vie.
Et des que je l'apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat
Track Name: Sweet Georgia Brown
Sweet Georgia Brown

NO GAL MADE HAS GOT A SHADE
ON SWEET GEORGIA BROWN,
TWO LEFT FEET, OH, SO NEAT,
HAS SWEET GEORGIA BROWN!
THEY ALL SIGH, AND WANT TO DIE,
FOR SWEET GEORGIA BROWN!
I'LL TELL YOU JUST WHY,
YOU KNOW I DON'T LIE, NOT MUCH:

IT'S BEEN SAID SHE KNOCKS 'EM DEAD,
WHEN SHE LANDS IN TOWN!
SINCE SHE CAME, WHY IT'S A SHAME,
HOW SHE COOLS THEM DOWN!
FELLAS SHE CAN'T GET
ARE FELLAS SHE AIN'T MET!
GEORGIA CLAIMED HER, GEORGIA NAMED HER,
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN!

ALL THOSE GIFTS THOSE COURTERS GIVE,
TO SWEET GEORGIA BROWN,
THEY BUY CLOTHES AT FASHION SHOWS,
WITH ONE DOLLAR DOWN,
OH, BOY! TIP YOUR HAT!
OH, JOY! SHE'S THE CAT!
WHO'S THAT, MISTER? 'TAIN'T NO SISTER!
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN!
