A Fool Such As I

 

(now and then there's a fool such as i)

pardon me, if i'm sentimental

when we say goodbye

don't be angry with me should i cry

when you're gone, yet i'll dream

a little dream as years go by

now and then there's a fool such as i

now and then there's a fool such as i am over you

you taught me how to love

and now you say that we are through

i'm a fool, but i'll love you dear

until the day i die

now and then there's a fool such as i

now and then there's a fool such as i am over you

you taught me how to love

and now you say that we are through

i'm a fool, but i'll love you dear

until the day i die

now and then there's a fool such as i

now and then there's a fool such as i

now and then there's a fool such as i

 

America the Beautiful

 

O beautiful for spacious skies

For amber waves of grain

For purple mountain - majesty

Above thy fruited plain

America, America

God shared His grace on thee

And crowned thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies

For amber waves of grain

For purple mountain - majesty

Above the fruited plain...

America, America

God shed His grace on thee

And crowned thy good, with brotherhood

From sea, to shining sea

America, America

God shared his grace on thee

And crowned thy good with brotherhood

From sea, to shining sea

A-m-e-r-i-c-a

 

An Evening Prayer

(Mahalia Jackson)

If I have wounded any soul today

If I have caused one's foot to go astray

If I have walked in my own willful way

Dear Lord, forgive

 

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee

Forgive the secret sins I do not see

Oh guide, watch over me

And my keeper be

Dear Lord, Amen

 

Amen

 

Blue Christmas

 

I'll have a blue Christmas without you

I'll be so blue just thinking about you

Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree

Won't be the same, dear, if you're not here with me

 

And when those blue snowflakes start falling

That's when those blue memories start calling

You'll be doin' all right with your Christmas of white

But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

 

You'll be doin' all right with your Christmas of white

But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

 

Blue Moon

 

Blue moon

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

 

Blue moon

You knew just what I was there for

You heard me saying a pray for

Someone I really could care for

 

Without a love of my own

 

Blue moon

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

 

Without a love of my own

Blue moon

Without a love of my own

 

Fun in Acapulco

 

Acapulco, sleeping in the bay

Acapulco, wake up and greet the day

Time to tell the guitars and sleepy-eyed stars

To be on their way

It's such a beautiful morning, for a holiday

Hey now come on, you old sleepy head

See the sky turning red, and you're still in bed

It's fun in Acapulco

Acapulco, look here comes the sun

 

Acapulco, it's a day for fun

I can't wait till I meet your sweet senoritas

Kiss everyone

This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun

I can't wait till I meet your sweet senoritas

Kiss everyone

This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun

This is no time for siesta, this is time for fun

 

Heartbreak Hotel

 

Well since my baby left me

well I found a new place to dwell

well it's down at the end of lonely street

at Heartbreak Hotel where I will be

 

I'll be there so lonely baby

I'll get so lonely

I'll be there so lonely I could die

 

Although it's always crowdy

you still can find some room

where broken-hearted lovers

do cry away their gloom

 

I'll be I'll be there so lonely baby

I'll be there so lonely

I'll get so lonely I could die

 

Well the bell hop's tears keep flowin'

the desk clerk's dressed in black

well they been so long on lonely street

they'll never they'll never look back

 

You make me so lonely baby

I'll get there so lonely

there's it's so lonely I could die

 

Well if your baby leaves you

well just take a walk down lonely street

to heartbreak hotel where you will be

 

You will be getting so lonely baby

Although it's always crowdy

you still can find some room

where broken-hearted lovers

can cry away their gloom

 

I'll be there so lonely baby

it'll leaves you lonely

it leaves you lonely they could die

 

 

He Touched Me

 

(words & music by William J. Gaither)

 

Shackled by a heavy burden

Need the Lord again and shame

Then the hand of Jesus touched me

And now I am no longer the same

 

For He touched me, He touched me

He touched me and what a wonderful joy

What wonderful joy that foods my soul

Something happened and now I know

He touched me and made me whole

 

Oh since I met this blessed Savior

And since he cleaned and me me whole

Oh I never cease, never cease to prise Him

I'll shout it while eternity rolls

 

Oh He touched me, oh He touched me

And oh what a joy that floods my soul

Something happened and now I know

He touched me and made me whole

 

His Hand in Mine

 

You may ask me how I know my Lord is real

You may doubt the things I say and doubt the way I feel

But I know he's real today he'll always be

I can feel his hand in mine and that's enough for me

 

I will never walk alone he holds my hand

He will guide each step I take

And if I fall I know he'll understand

Till the day he tells me why he loves me so

I can feel his hand in mine

That's all I need to know

 

I will never walk alone he holds my hand

He will guide each step I take

And if I fall I know he'll understand

Till the day he tells me why he loves me so

I can feel his hand in mine

That's all I need to know

 

I can feel his hand in mine

That's all I need to know

 

I Believe

 

I believe for every drop of rain that falls

A flower grows

I believe that somewhere in the darkest night

A candle glows

I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come

To show the way

I believe, I believe

 

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer

Can still be heard

I believe that someone in the great somewhere

Hears every word

 

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,

Or touch a leaf or see the sky

Then I know why, I believe

 

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,

Or touch a leaf or see the sky

Then I know why, I believe

 

I Can't Give You Anything but Love

(Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong u.a.)

I can't give you anything but love, baby

That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby

Dream awhile, scheme awhile

you're sure to find

Happiness, and I guess

All those things you've always pinned for

 

Gee, I'd like to see you looking swell, baby

Diamond bracelets, Woolworth's doesn't sell, baby

Until that lucky day, you know darn well, baby

I can't give you anything but Love

 

I Was the One

 

I was the one who taught her to kiss

The way that she kisses you now.

And you know the way she touches your cheek,

Well, I taught her how.

 

I was the one who taught her to cry

When she wants you under her spell.

The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind,

I taught her so well.

 

And then one day

I had my love as perfect as could be.

She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried,

And it was all for me.

 

I'll never know who taught her to lie.

Now that it's over and done,

Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?

 

I was the one.

 

And then one day

I had my love as perfect as could be.

She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried,

And it was all for me.

 

I'll never know who taught her to lie.

Now that it's over and done,

Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?

I was the one.

 

It Is No Secret

 

The chimes of time ring out the news,

Another day is through.

Someone slipped and fell.

Was that someone you?

 

You may have longed for added strength,

Your courage to renew.

Do not be disheartened,

For I have news for you.

 

It is no secret what God can do.

What he's done for others, he'll do for you.

With arms wide open, he'll pardon you.

It is no secret what God can do.

 

There is no night for in his light

You never walk alone.

Always feel at home,

Wherever you may go.

 

There is no power can conquer you

While God is on your side.

Take him at his promise,

Don't run away and hide.

 

It is no secret what God can do.

What he's done for others, he'll do for you.

With arms wide open, he'll pardon you.

It is no secret what God can do.

 

Mystery Train Lyrics

 

Train i ride, sixteen coaches long

train i ride, sixteen coaches long

well, that long black train, got my baby and gone

Train, train, comin' round the bend

train, train, comin' round the bend

well, it took my baby, but it never will again

Train, train, comin' down, down the line

train, train, comin' down, down the line

well, it's bringin' my baby, 'cause she's mine, all mine

she's mine, all mine

Train, train, comin' round, round the bend

train, train, comin' round, round the bend

round, round the bend

well, it took my baby, but it never will again

never will again

Whoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-hoo

 

Puppet On A String

 

Every time you look at me

I,m as helpless as can be

I become a puppet on a string

You can do 'most anything to me

 

All you do is touch my hand

And your wish is my command

I become a puppet on a string

You can do 'most anything to me

 

If you really love me

Darling please be kind

I offer you the truest love

That you will ever find

 

Take my heart and please be fair

Handle it with loving care

For I'm just a puppet on a string

You can do 'most anything to me

 

If you really love me

Darling please be kind

I offer you the truest love

That you will ever find

 

Take my heart and please be fair

Handle it with loving care

For I'm just a puppet on a string

You can do 'most anything to me

You can do 'most anything to me

 

Softly and Tenderly

 

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,

Calling for you and for me.

Patient and loving He? waiting and watching;

Watching for you and for me.

 

Chorus:

Come home, come home,

Ye who are weary come home;

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;

Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading,

Pleading for you and for me?

Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies;

Mercies for you and for me?

 

Repeat Chorus

 

O for the wonderful love He has promised,

Promised for you and for me.

Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon;

Pardon for you and for me.

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Softly As I Leave You

 

Softly

I will leave you

Softly

For my heart would break

If you should wake

And see me go

 

So I leave you

Softly

Long before you miss me

Long before your arms can beg me stay

For one more hour

For one more day

 

After all the years

I can't bare the tears

To fall

So softly,

I will leave you

I will leave you there

 

Stuck On You

 

You can shake an apple off an apple tree

Shake-a, shake- sugar,

But you'll never shake me

Uh-uh-uh

No-sir-ee, uh, uh

I'm gonna stick like glue,

Stick because I'm

Stuck on you

 

I'm gonna run my fingers through your long black hair

Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear

Uh-uh-uh,

Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh

I'm gonna stick like glue

Stick, because I'm

Stuck on you

 

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall

Ain't gonna do you no good at all

'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts

A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

 

Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side

That's how love is gonna keep us tied

Uh-uh-uh

Uh-uh-uh

Oh yeah

Uh-uh-uh

I'm gonna stick like glue

Stick, because I'm

Stuck on you

 

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall

Ain't gonna do you no good at all

'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts

A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

 

Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side

That's how love is gonna keep us tied

Uh-uh-uh

Yes-sir-ee, uh,uh

I'm gonna stick like glue

Yeah yeah, because I'm

Stuck on you

I'm gonna stick like glue

Yeah yeah, because I'm

Stuck on you

I'm gonna stick like glue

Yeah yeah, because I'm

Stuck on you

 

Teddy Bear

 

Oh, baby let me be your loving teddy bear

Pull a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere

Oh, let me be your teddy bear.

 

I don't wanna be a tiger cos' tigers play to rough

I don't wanna be a lion cos lions ain't the kind

You love enough

 

That's why I want to be, your teddy bear

Pull a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere

Oh, let me be your teddy bear.

 

Baby, let me be around you every night

Run your face through my hands and caught to me real tight

Oh, let me be your teddy bear.

 

I don't wanna be a tiger cos' tigers play to rough

I don't wanna be a lion cos lions ain't the kind

You love enough

 

That's why I want to be, your teddy bear

Pull a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere

Oh, let me be your teddy bear.

 

And girls won't leave their teddy bear.

 

The Wonder Of You

 

When no-one else can understand me

When everything I do is wrong

You give me hope and consolation

You give me strength to carry on

 

And you're always there to lend a hand

In everything I do

That's the wonder

The wonder of you

 

And when you smile the world is brighter

You touch my hand and I'm a king

Your kiss to me is worth a fortune

Your love for me is everything

 

I'll guess I'll never know the reason why

You love me like you do

That's the wonder

The wonder of you

 

We Shall Overcome

(Pete Seeger)

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome, some day.

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

I do believe

We shall overcome, some day.

 

We'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand, some day.

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

 

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace, some day.

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

 

We shall all be free,

We shall all be free,

We shall all be free, some day.

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

 

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid, TODAY

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

 

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome, some day.

 

Oh, deep in my heart,

I do believe

We shall overcome, some day.

 

You'll Never Walk Alone

 

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high

And don't be afraid of the dark.

At the end of a storm is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,

Walk on through the rain,

Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone,

You'll never walk alone.

 

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone,

You'll never walk alone.
