MAX BYGRAVES SINGALONGMAX -- CD

Speranza

***********************

TRACK 1

******************

SONG 1:

HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN
the skies above are clear again
let us sing a song of cheer again
HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN
altogether shout it now 

there's no one who can doubt it now
so
let's tell the world about it now
HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN
---- your cares and troubles are gone
---- there'll be no more from now on


**************

Song 2:


POWDER YOUR FACE WITH SUNSHINE
put on a great big smile
make up your eyes with laughter
folks will be laughing with you in a little while
why don't you whistle a tune of gladness
gloom never was in style
the future's brighter
when hearts are lighter
SMILE SMILE SMILE


*******************

Song 3:

I'M LOOKING OVER A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
that I overlooked before
one leaf is sunshine, the second is rain
third is the roses that grow in the lane
and there is no need explaining
the one remaining
is somebody I adore
I’M LOOKING OVER A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
that I overlooked before.


***************

Song 4:

WHEN YOU’RE SMILING  -- when you’re smiling
THE WHOLE WORLD SMILES WITH YOU.
when you're laughing -- when you're laughin'
the sun comes shining thru.
-- but when you're crying
-- you bring on the rain
-- so stop your sighing
-- be happy again
keep on smiling, 'cause when you're smilin'
the whole world smiles with you


*****************

PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME, HONEY  
hold me tight
huddle up and cuddle up with all your might
o o
won't you roll those eyes
eyes that I just idolize
when you look at me my heart begins to float
then it starts a rockin' like a motor boat
o o
I never knew any girl like you.

****************

TRACK 2

************

Song 1

I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad all of the while

I could change the grey skies to blue
IF I HAD YOU.
I could leave the old days behind
leave all my pals I'd never mind
I could start my life full anew
IF I HAD YOU
I could climb the snow-capped mountains
sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross the burning desert
if I had you by my side
I could be a king, dear, uncrowned
humble or poor rich or renowned
there's just nothing I couldn't do
IF I HAD YOU.





*****************

Song 2:

one bright and guiding light
that taught me wrong from right
I found in
MY MOTHER'S EYES
those baby tales she told
that road all paved with gold
I found in
MY MOTHER'S EYES
-- just like a wand'ring sparrow
-- one lonely soul
-- I walked the straight and the narrow
-- to reach my goal.
god's gift sent from above
a real un-selfish love
I found in
MY MOTHER'S EYES

**************************************

TRACK 3

**********************************

Song 1

when whippoorwills call

and evenin' is nigh

I Hurry to

my Blue Heaven

I turn to the right

 a little white light

Will lead you to

my Blue Heaven


You'll see a smilin' face
a fireplace, a cozy room
a little nest that nestles where the roses bloom

Just Molly and me,
and baby makes three
We're happy in

my Blue Heaven


You're gonna see a smilin' face, fireplace, cozy room
And a little nest nestled where the roses bloom

Just Molly and me, and the baby is three
We're so happy in my Blue Heaven
We're happy in my Blue Heaven
We're happy in my Blue Heaven!




******************


Song 2:

o we ain't got a barrel of money
maybe we're ragged and funny
but we'll travel along
singing a songs
SIDE BY SIDE
don't know what's comin' tomorrow
maybe it's trouble and sorrow
but we'll travel the road
sharing our load
SIDE BY SIDE
thru all kinds of weather
what if the sky should fall?
just as long as we're together
it doesn't matter at all
when they've all had their quarrels and parted
we'll be the same as we started
just a-traveling along
singing a song
SIDE BY SIDE

************************************************


WHEN THE RED RED ROBIN
COMES BOB BOB BOBBIN’ ALONG -- along
there'll be no more sobbin'
when he starts throbbin' his old sweet song
wake up -- wake up -- you sleepy head
get up -- get up -- get out of bed
cheer up -- cheer up -- the sun is red
live love laugh & be happy
what if I were blue now I'm walking thru fields
of flowers
rain may glisten but still I listen  for hours 
and hours
I'm just a kid again
doing what I did again
singing a song
WHEN  THE RED RED ROBIN
COMES BOB BOB BOBBIN’ ALONG.

******************************************************

Song 3:


SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
and it's gone straight up to my head
where ever I may roam
on land or sea or foam
you will always hear me singing this song
SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME

*****************************************************


SOME OF THESE DAYS
you'll miss me, honey
SOME OF THESE DAYS
you'll feel so lonely
you'll miss my huggin'
you'll miss my kissin'
you'll miss me, honey
when you're away.
I'll feel so lonely
just for you only
'cos you know, honey
you've had your way
and when you leave 
you know it's gonna grieve me
you're gonna miss your big fat mama
SOME OF THESE DAYS

Track 4

***********

Song 1



I'm THE SHEIK OF ARABY
your love belongs to me
at nights when you're asleep
into your tent I'll creep
the stars that shine above
will light our way to love
you'll rule this land with me
I'm THE SHEIK OF ARABY.
 

****************

Song 2

SHINE away your blues'ies

*****************

Song 3

my  old man said foller the van

& DON’T DILLY DALLY ON THE WAY

off went the van wiv me 'ome packed in it

I walked be'ind wiv me old cock linnet

but I dillied & dallied dallied & dillied

lost me way & don't know where to roam

you can't trust a special like the old-time copper

when you can't find your way home.

***************************************************

Song 4

HANDS KNEES and BOOMPS A DAISY

I like a bustle that bends

HANDS KNEES and BOOMPS A DAISY

what is a boomp between friends

hands knees o don't be lazy

let's make the party a wow-

HANDS KNEES and BOOMPS A DAISY

turn to your partner and bow -- BOW WOW

*********************************

Song 5

YES WE HAVE NO BANANAS
we have no bananas today
we’ve string beans and onions
cabashes and scallions
and all kinds of fruit, they say
we have an old fashioned tomato
a nice Jersey potato
but YES WE HAVE NO BANANAS
WE HAVE NO BANANAS today.


*******************

TRACK 5

******************


Song 1

I'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING in perfect harmonee
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it companee
I'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love
grow apple-trees and honey bees
and snow-white doves
I'd like to see the world for once
all standing hand in hand
and hear that echo thru the hills
for peace throughout the land

*****************************************************

EVERYWHERE YOU GO
sunshine follows you
EVERYWHERE YOU GO
skies are always blue
-- children love you -- hey seem to know
-- you bring roses -- out of the snow
the whole world says hello
EVERYWHERE YOU GO

*******************

ALL I DO IS DREAM OF YOU
the whole night thru
with the dawn
I still go on
and dream of you
you're every tho't
you're everything
you're every song I ever sing
summer -- winter -- autumn -- and spring.
and were there more than twenty-four
hours a day
they'd be spent
in sweet content
dreaming away
when skies are grey
when skies are blue
morning -- noon -- and night-time, too
all I do the whole day thru is dream of you.

**********************

Song 4

If I had a talking picture of you

I would run it every time I felt blue.
I would sit there in the gloom of my lonely little room
And applaud each time you whispered, "I love you"
On the screen the moment you came in view
we would talk the whole thing over, we two.
I would give ten shows a day
and a midnight matinee
IF I HAD A TALKING PICTURE OF YOU


*******************

reprise:

I'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD

that's the song I hear
I never fades away.


******************

TRACK 6

******************

HOLD ME, honey won't you HOLD ME
HOLD ME never let me go
take me, honey, won't you take me
never to forsake me
'cos I love you so
thrill me, let your kisses thrill me
just like you alone can do
HOLD ME tenderly and fold me
never try to hold me from you.


****************

Song 2

Evening shadows make me blue
When each weary day is through
How I long to be with you -- MY HAPPINESS
every day I reminisce
dreaming of your tender kiss
always thinking how I miss -- MY HAPPINESS
-- a million years it seems
-- have gone by since we shared our dreams
-- But I'll hold you again
-- there'll be no blue memories then
whether skies are gray or blue
any place on earth will do
just as long as I'm with you -- MY HAPPINESS

 


***************

Song 3

come on and come to me MY MELANCHOLY BABY
cuddle up and don't be blue
all your fears are foolish fancy  may be
you know, dear, I’m in love with you
and ev'ry cloud must have a silver lining
wait until that sun shines thru
come on and smile my honey dear
while I kiss away each tear
or else I will be melancholy too.

**********************

Song 4

LOVE ME A LITTLE MORE
more than you've loved before
show me that you mind completely
it's you that I adore
I am so like you
if you will LOVE ME A LITTLE MORE
just as much as I love you.



********************

TRACK 7

************************

Song 1


PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES
IN YOUR OWN KIT BAG
and SMILE SMILE SMILE
while you’ve a Lucifer to light your fag
smile, boys, that’s the style
what’s the use of worrying?
it never was worthwile, so
PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES IN
YOUR OWN KIT BAG
and SMILE SMILE SMILE.


*******************************

THERE'S A TAVERN IN THE TOWN 
and there my true love sits him down
and there he drinks his wine 'mid lall the aughter free
and never never thinks of me.

fare thee well -- for I must leave thee

do not let this parting grieve thee

and remember that the best of friends must part

adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu, kind friends, adieu
I can no longer stay with you
and then I'll hang my harp on a weeping willow tree
and may the world go well with thee.
 

 

 
***************


IT’S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY it’s a long way to go
IT’S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY to the sweetest girl I know
goodbye Piccadilly farewell Leicester square
IT’S A LONG long WAY TO TIPPERARY but my heart’s right there.

***********************************************************

goodbye Dolly I must leave you
tho’ it breaks my heart to go
something tells me I am needed
at the front to fight the foe
see the soldier boys are marching
and  I can no longer stay
hark, I hear the bugle calling
GOODBYE DOLLY GRAY

**************************************************



ROLL OUT THE BARREL
we'll have a barrel of fun
ROLL OUT THE BARREL
we’ve got the blues on the run
zing boom tararrel
ring out a song of good cheer
now's the time to ROLL OUT THE BARREL
for the gang's all here.


*****************************************

TRACK 8

*******************************

Song 1:

kiss me once, kiss me twice
then kiss me once again
IT'S BEEN A LONG-LONG TIME
haven't felt like this, my dear,
since can't remember when
IT'S BEEN A LONG-LONG TIME
you'll never know how many dreams I've dreamed about you
or just how empty day seems without you


******************

Song 2:

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN LONELY
Have you ever been blue
Have you ever loved someone
Just as I love you
can't you see I'm sorry
for each mistake I've made
can't you see I've changed, dear,
can't you see that I've paid?
--- be a little forgivin'
--- take me back in your heart
---- how can I go on livin'
---- now that we're apart
if you knew
what I've been thru
you would know why I ask you
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN LONELY
have you ever been blue


****************

TRACK 9



*********************

Song 1:


ALL OF ME -- why not take ALL OF ME

can’t you see --- I’m no good without you

take my lips -- I wanna lose them

take my arms -- I'll never use them

your goodbye left me with eyes that cry

how can I  -- go on dear without you

you took the part -- that once was my heart

 so, why not take  -- ALL OF ME?

**************************************

Song 2:


I'M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN and WRITE MYSELF A LETTER
and make believe it came from you
I'm gonna write words o so sweet
they're gonna knock me off my feet
a lot of kisses on the bottom
and I'll be glad I've got 'em
I'm gonna smile and say that I hope you're feelin' better
and close with love the way you do
I’M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN and WRITE MYSELF A LETTER
and make believe it came from you.


*****************************************


TRACK 10

*****

Song 1 ("The Wyoming Lullaby")

GO TO SLEEP MY BABY
close your pretty eyes
angels are above you
watching little from the sky
great big moon is shining
stars begin to beam
it's time for all the little children
to go to sleep

******************************************

Song 2:

WHAT'LL I DO
When you are far away
And I am blue
WHAT'LL I DOfrom:
WHAT'LL I DO
when I am wond'ring who
is kissing you
WHAT'LL I DO? 
-- what'll I do with just a photograph
-- to tell my troubles to
when I'm alone
with on-ly dreams of you
that won't -- come true
WHAT'LL I DO?

***************************

Song 3:

WHEN YOUR HAIR HAS TURNED TO SILVER
I will love you just the same
I will only call you sweetheart
That will always be your name
thru a garden filled with roses
down the sun-set trail we'll stray
WHEN YOUR HAIR HAS TURNED TO SILVER
I will love you as today.


************************************************

Song 4:


smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
when the clouds roll by I'll come to you
then the skies will seem more blue
down in Lovers' Lane, my dearie
wedding bells will ring so merrily
ev'ry tear will be a memory
so wait and pray each night for me
TILL WE MEET AGAIN
 
 
 


********************

TRACK 11

Song 1


HOME TOWN
 want to wander round your backstreets
See your tumble-down old shack streets
I'd love to walk back into  those corny country cousins of mine

HOME TOWN
where they get up in the morning
And are all so busy yawning
I'll get a welcome from the corny country cousins of mine
--- there's an old schoolhouse door
--- We used to tumble thru at four
-- and a small candy store
--- where I could go a dozen lollipops and still want for more
HOME TOWN
where the garden trees are shady
where our Edie was a lady
I'm going back
to see those corny country cousins of mine.
 
*********************************************************************

Song 2:


it’s ONLY a shanty in old shanty town
the roof is so slanty it touches the ground
but my tumble-down shack by the old railroad track
like a millonaire’s mansion is calling me back
I’d give up a palace if I were a king
it’s more than a palace it’s my everything
there’s a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
IN A SHANTY IN OLD SHANTY TOWN.

*****************************

Song 3:

HEART O' MY HEART
o I love that melodee
HEART O' MY HEART
brings back a memoree
when we were kids
on the corner of the street
we were rough and ready guys
but o how we could harmonise
HEART O' MY HEART
meant friends were dearer then
too bad we had to part
I know a tear would glisten
if once more I could listen
To the gang
that sang
HEART OF MY HEART


***************

UNDERNEATH THE ARCHES
I dream our dreams away
UNDERNEATH THE ARCHES
on cobblestones I lay
every night you'll find me
tired and warn
happy when the day-light comes creeping
heralding the dawn
sleeping when it’s raining
sleeping when it’s fine
I hear the trains rattling by above
pavement is my pillow
no matter where I stray
UNDERNEATH THE ARCHES 
I dream our dreams away.

*********************

TRACK 12

Song 1:


CASEY WOULD WALTZ WITH A STRAWBERRY BLONDE
AND THE BAND PLAYED ON
HE'D GLIDE CROSS THE FLOOR
WITH THE GIRL HE ADOR'D
AND THE BAND PLAYED ON
HIS BRAIN WAS SO LOADED
IT NEARLY EXPLODED
THE POOR GIRL WOULD SHAKE WITH ALARM
HE'D NE'ER LEAVE THE GIRL
WITH THE STRAWBERRY CURL
AND THE BAND PLAYED ON

*****

Song 2:


  If her eyes are blue as skies
that's
PEGGY O'NEIL
If she's smiling all the while,
that's
Peggy O'Neil
If she walks like a sly little rogue
If she talks with a cute little brogue
Sweet personality
 full of rascality That's
Peggy O'Neil



******



Song 3

It's three o'clock in the morning
We danced the whole night through
And day-light will soon be dawning
Just one more waltz with you
melody so entrancing
Seems to made for us too
I could just keep on right dancing forever, dear, just with you



************

Song 4



AFTER THE BALL is over after the break of dawn

after the dancers' leaving after the stars are gone

many a heart is aching if you could read them all

many the hopes that have vanished -- AFTER THE BALL

*******

Song 5

---- from "The Great Caruso"

when you are in love
IT'S THE LOVELIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR

stars twinkle above
and you almost can touch them from here
words fall into rhyme
any time you are holding me near
when you are in love
IT'S THE LOVELIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR

--- Waltzing along in the blue
--- Like a breeze drifting over the sand
--- Thrilled by the wonder of you
--- and the wonderful touch of your hand and...

and my heart starts to beat
Like a child when a birthday is near
So kiss me, my sweet,
IT'S THE LOVELIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR


************

Track 13:

Song 1
 

IF YOU KNEW SUSIE
LIKE I KNOW SUSIE
o--o--o what a girl
there's none so classy -- as this fair lassie
o--o--o
holy Moses
what a chassis
we went riding she didn't balk
from the country
I'm the one that had to walk
IF YOU KNEW SUSIE
LIKE I KNOW SUSIE
oh oh what a girl

*************************

Song 2:


HOW YA GONNA KEEP’EM
DOWN ON THE FARM
after they've seen Paree
how ya gonna keep’em away from Piccadilly
jazzin around, paintin' the town
how ya gonna keep 'em away from harm
that's a mysteree
they'll never want to see a rake or plow
and who the deuce can parley-vous a cow
HOW YA GONNA KEEP’EM DOWN ON THE FARM
after they've seen Paree'

**************



Song 3

then he'd

ROW ROW ROW

way up the river

he would

ROW ROW ROW

A hug he'd give her then he'd kiss her now and; then

she would tell him when

they'd fool around and; fool around

and then they'd kiss again

and then he'd

row, row, row

a little further he would

row o-o-o

then he'd drop both his oars
and take a few more encores
and then he'd ROW ROW ROW 

a little further he would

go, oh, oh, oh,

then we'll drop both our oars

take a round of applause,

and then we'll go, go, go.

Watch them shuffling along,

See them shuffling along!

Go take your best gal, real pal

Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,

and join that shuffling throng

Hear that music and song!

It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy

WAITING FOR THE ROBERT E. LEE.

The whistles are blowing, the smokestacks are showing

the ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going

to the place where all is harmonious

even the preacher, he is the dancing teacher!

Have you been down there?

Were you around there?

If you ever go there you'll always be found there,

why, dog-gone, here comes my baby

on the good old Robert E. Lee!

Watch them shuffling along,

See them shuffling along

Go take your best gal, real pal

Go down to the levy, I said to the levy,

And join that shuffling throng

Hear that music and song!

It's simply great, mate, waiting on the levy

Waiting for the Robert E. Lee!

TRACK 14

*************************

Song 1


IT HAD TO BE YOU
IT HAD TO BE YOU
I wondered around
finally found
some-body who
could make me be true
could make me blue
and even be glad
just to be sad
thinkin' of you
some others I’ve seen
might never be mean
might never be cross
or try to be boss
but they wouldn’t do
for nobody else gave me that thrill
with all your faults I love you still
IT HAD TO BE YOU
wonderful you,
it had


*****

Song 2:


I'LL GET BY
as long as I
have you
o there'll be rain and darkness
I'll not complain
I'll see you thru
tho' I may
be far away
it's true
say what care I dear
I'LL GET BY
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.


*****

Song 3:


You may not be an angel
'cause angels are so few b
so until the day that one comes along
I'LL STRING ALONG WITH YOU

I'm looking for an angel to sing my love song to

and until the day that one comes along
I'll sing my song to you.


-- for ev'ry little fault that you have
-- say I've got three or four

-- the little human little faults you do have
Just make me love you more


You may not be an angel
But still I'm sure you'll do
and until the day that one comes along
I'll string along with you

*********

Song 4:


I’LL BE SEEING YOU
in all the old familiar places
that my heart and mind embraces
all day thru
in that small café
the park across the way
the children’s carrousel
the chestnut trees -- the wishing well
I’LL BE SEEING YOU
in ev’ry lovely summer's day
in everything that's bright and gay
I’ll always think of you that way
I’ll find you in the morning sun
and when the night is new
I’ll be looking at the moon – but
I’LL BE SEEING YOU.

***************

Track 15:


SHOULD I
reveal
exactly how I feel
SHOULD I
confess I love you?
SHOULD I
resign beneath the pale moon light
and swear stars above you
-- could I
-- repeat
-- the sweetest story told
-- could I
-- entreat
-- would it be too bold now
SHOULD I
reveal
exactly how I feel
SHOULD I
confess I love you

Song 2

five foot two --------------------------------------turned up nose
eyes of blue---------------------------------------turned-down hose
but o what those five foot could do------------never had no other beaus
 

------- HAS ANY-BODY SEEN MY GAL?

now if you run into five foot two covered with fur

diamond rings

and all those things

bet your life it isn't hers

could she love? could she

could she love? could she coo

HAS ANY-BODY SEEN MY GAL?


*************

Song 3:


I'M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES -- pretty bubbles in the air,

they fly so high -- nearly reach the sky

then like my dreams they fade and die.

fortune's always hiding I've looked everywhere

I'M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES  -- pretty bubbles in the air.

*************

Song 4:

AIN’T SHE SWEET? See her walking down the street

now I ask you very confidentially: ain't she sweet

ain't she nice? look her over once or twice

now I ask you very confidentially: ain't she nice

just cast an eye in her direction

o me o my -- ain't that perfection

I repeat, don't you think that's kind of neat?

now I ask you very confidentially: ain't she sweet?


*****************************************

TRACK 16:

*****************************************

Song 1:


I wonder why you keep me waiting
CHARMAINE
cries in vain
I wonder when blue-birds are mating
will you come back again
I wonder if I keep on praying
will our dreams be the same
I wonder if ever you think of me too
CHARMAINE just waiting for you



***********


Song 2:

I'LL BE YOUR SWEETHEART -- if you will be mine
all my life -- I'll be your valentine
blue-bells I've gathered  -- keep them -- and be true
when I'm a man -- my plan  --will be to marry you.


*********

Song 3:

WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM
I'll have you to remember
WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM
your love will live in my heart
so, kiss me my sweet
and so let us part
and WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM
that kiss will live in my heart



***************

Song 3:

WHO'S TAKING YOU HOME TONIGHT?
after the dance is thru
who's going to hold you tight
and whisper I love you, I do
-- Who's the lucky boy
-- that's going your way
-- To kiss you goodnight
-- at your doorway
WHO'S TAKING YOU HOME TONIGHT
darling it's plain to see
I'm pleading, please let it be me.


*******************************



Song 4:


YOU NEED HANDS to hold someone to care
YOU NEED HANDS to show you are sincere
when you feel nobody wants to know you
YOU NEED HANDS to brush away the tears
when you hold the brand-new baby
you'll need tender hands to guide him on the way
YOU NEED THANKS to thankful all for living
and for giving us this day.

*******************
