Cry Me A River
Now you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Folk Monologue / Value
Can I get my glass of tea? Mmm, nothing like it!
At this time I would like very much to do a Folksong. Since Folksongs,
I think are still popular today. Uhm, this one is in Latvian and it's
from Latvia. And it's about this Tahitian girl who uhm, had this lover.
And then one day this lover decides that he doesn't like her anymore
and likes her sister better. So she decided that the only thing to do
naturally was to kill herself, see. So one day, oh, was very nice out
about 75 degrees, and she was taking this walk down to the river to
drown when she, she tripped over this rock see. And uhm, oh it was
awful I mean, she broke her glasses, she scrapped her knees. And uhm,
He Touched Me
He touched me, he put his hand near mine
And then he touched me
I felt a sudden tingle when he touched me
A sparkle, a glow
He knew it...it wasn't accidental, no, he knew it
He smiled and seem to tell me so all through it
He knew it, I know...
Hes real, and the world is alive and shining
I feel such a wonderful drive twards valentining
I Can See It
Beyond that road lies a shining world
Beyond that road lies despair
Beyond that road lies a world that's gleaming
People who are scheming...
Beauty, hunger, glory, sorrow, never a pain or care
But I'm liable to find a couple of surprises there...
There's a song I must sing, it's a well known song,
But the tune is bitter
And it doesn't take long to learn, I can learn!
That pretty little world that beams so bright
Love Is Like A New Born Child
Full of bright new dreams
But we can't take love for granted
For to me it seems
A new love is like a new born child
Tender and sweet and a-need of care
Is the lave we share
Like a new born child
Marty The Martian
The hills are alive
And it's pretty frightening
The sun goes down
The moon comes out
The people gather 'round and we all begin to shout
You better not cry
You better not shout
You better not pout
My heart would make
With you my love
The happy sound
Of water on stone
The quiet sound
Of waves on sand
When you hold my hand
My heart makes
People (From A Happening In Central Park)
At this time I should like very much to thank my wonderful conductor.
And what he does is this...It's sort of... It reminds me of an old
Mae West picture...uh... I don't know how I made this association,
but...you see, he makes this orchestra sound as if there were 70 pieces.
And it reminds me the scene where Mae was teaching in a classroom
and she said: [imitating Mae West's voice] "One an' one is two...two
an' two is four... four an' four makes ten, if you have worked right!"
And I would also like to say that I'm thrilled and delighted...I can't
believe there's 128,000 people out there... "FEENTASTIC!" Ah! Ah!
Second Hand Rose (From A Happening In Central Park)
Father has a business strictly second hand
Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
Even things I'm wearing someone wore before
It's no wonder that I feel abused
I never get a thing that ain't been used
I'm wearing second hand hats
Second hand clothes
That's why they call me
Second hand Rose
