Blues In The Night
My mama done told me, when I was in knee-pants
My mama done told me, son a womanâ€™ll sweet talk
And give you the big eye but when the sweet talkinâ€™s done
A womanâ€™s a two-face, a worrisome thing
Whoâ€™ll leave you to sing the blues in the night
Now the rainâ€™s a-fallinâ€™, hear the trainâ€™s a-callin', whooee
My mama done told me hear that lonesome whistle
Blowinâ€™ â€™cross the trestle, whooee
My mama done told me a-whooee ah-whooee old clickety-clackâ€™s
First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore
Then rolls out to sea
And the sea is very still once more
So I rush to your side
Like the oncoming tide
With one burning thought
Will your arms open wide?
I'll never forget you, I'll never forget you
I'll never forget how we promised one day
To love one another forever that way
We said we'd never say good-bye
But that was long ago
Now you've forgotten, I know
No use to wonder why
Let's say farewell with a sigh, let love die
Only The Lonely
Each place I go only the lonely go
Some little small cafe
The songs I know only the lonely know
Each melody recalls a love that used to be
The dreams I dream only the lonely dream
Of lips as warm as May
That hopeless scheme only the lonely scheme
That soon somewhere you'll find the one that used to care
Sleep warm, sleep tight, when you turn off the light
Sleep warm, sleep well, my love
Rest your head on the pillow, what a lucky pillow
Close to you, so close to you all night
Sleep warm, sleep well, let dreams [Incomprehensible] you a spell
Sweet dreams of me, my love
Close your eyes now and kiss me, and whisper you miss me
Sleep tight, sleep well, sleep warm
Spring Is Here
Spring is here, why doesn't my heart go dancing?
Spring is here, why isn't the waltz entrancing?
No desire, no ambition leads me
Maybe it's because nobody needs me?
Spring is here, why doesn't the breeze delight me?
Stars appear, why doesn't the night invite me?
Maybe it's because nobody loves me
What's new? How is the world treating you?
You haven't changed a bit, lovely as ever, I must admit
What's new? How did that romance come through?
We haven't met since then
Gee, but it's nice to see you again
What's new? Probably, I'm boring you
But seeing you is grand and you were sweet to offer your hand
I understand, Adieu, pardon my asking, what's new
Of course, you couldn't know, I haven't changed, I still love you so
