"My Way" Writer(s): Revaux/Francois/Anka And now, the end is near; And so I face the final curtain. My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case, of which I'm certain. I've lived a life that's full. I've traveled each and ev'ry highway; But more, much more than this, I did it my way. Regrets, I've had a few; But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption. I planned each charted course; Each careful step along the byway, But more, much more than this, I did it my way. Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew. But through it all, when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out. I faced it all and I stood tall; And did it my way. I've loved, I've laughe

"Moon River" Writer(s): Henry Mancini Moon River wider than a mile I'm crossing you in style someday All the dream makers, you heartbreaker Wherever you're going I'm going your way Two drifters off to see the world There's such a lot of world to see We're after the same rainbows And waiting round the band My huckleberry friend, Moon River And me

"My Kind of Town" Writer(s): Cahn/van Heusen Now this could only happen to a guy like me And only happen in a town like this And so I say to each of you most gratefully As I throw each one of you a kiss 1


This is my kind of town, Chicago is My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of people too People who, smile at you And each time I roam, Chicago is Calling me home, Chicago is One town that won't let you down It's my kind of town My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of razzmatazz And it has, all that jazz And each time I leave, Chicago is Tuggin' my sleeve, Chicago is The Wrigley Building, Chicago is The Chicago Cubbies, Chicago is One town that won't let you down It's my kind of town

"Strangers in the Night" Writer(s): Kaempfert/Singleton/Snyder Strangers in the night exchanging glances Wond'ring in the night What were the chances we'd be sharing love Before the night was through. Something Something Something Told me I

in your eyes was so inviting, in you smile was so exciting, in my heart, must have you.

Strangers in the night, two lonely people We were strangers in the night Up to the moment When we said our first hello. Little did we know Love was just a glance away, A warm embracing dance away and Ever since that night we've been together. Lovers at first sight, in love forever. It turned out so right, For strangers in the night.

"Summer Wind" Writer(s): The summer wind, came blowin' in - from across the sea It lingered there, so warm and fair - to walk with me All summer long, we sang a song - and strolled on golden sand Two sweethearts, and the summer wind 2


Like painted kites, those days and nights - went flyin' by The world was new, beneath a blue - umbrella sky Then softer than, a piper man - one day it called to you And I lost you, to the summer wind The autumn wind, and the winter wind - have come and gone And still the days, those lonely days - go on and on And guess who sighs his lullabies - through nights that never end My fickle friend, the summer wind

"Something Stupid" Writer(s): Parks I know I stand in line, until you think you have the time To spend an evening with me And if we go someplace to dance, I know that there's a chance You won't be leaving with me And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place And have a drink or two And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid Like: "I love you" I can see it in your eyes, that you despise the same old lies You heard the night before And though it's just a line to you, for me it's true It never seemed so right before I practice every day to find some clever lines to say To make the meaning come through But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late And I'm alone with you The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars get red And oh the night's so blue And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid Like: "I love you" ("I love you, I love you,...")

"New York, New York" Writer(s): Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today I want to be a part of it - New York, New York These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray Right through the very heart of it - New York, New York I want to wake up in a city, that doesn't sleep And find I'm king of the hill - top of the heap These little town blues, are melting away I'm gonna make a brand new start of it - in old New York If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere It's up to you - New York, New York 3


They Can't Take That Away from Me" Writer(s): George and Ira Gershwin There are many many crazy things That will keep me loving you And with your permission May I list a few The way you wear your hat The way you sip your tea The memory of all that No they can't take that away from me The way The way The way No they

your smile just beams you sing off key you haunt my dreams can't take that away from me

We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love But I'll always, always keep the memory of The way The way The way No they

you hold your knife we danced till three you changed my life can't take that away from me

"That's Life" Writer(s): Kay/Gordon/Kay/Gordon That's life, that's what people say. You're riding' high in April, Shot down in May. But I know I'm gonna change that tune, When I'm back on top in June. That's life, funny as it seems. Some people get their kicks, Steppin' on dreams; But I don't let it get me down, 'Cause this ol' word keeps getting around. I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, A poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out And I know one thing: Each time I find myself flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race. That's life, I can't deny it, I thought of quitting, But my heart just won't buy it. If I didn't think it was worth a try, I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die. 4


"Lady is a Tramp, The" Writer(s): Rodgers/Hart She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight She loves the theater, but doesn't come late She'd never bother, with people she'd hate That's why the lady is a tramp Doesn't like crap games, with barons and earls Won't go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls That's why the lady is a tramp She loves the free, fresh wind in her hair Life without care She's broke, but it's o'k She hates California, it's cold and it's damp That's why the lady is a tramp Doesn't like dice games, with sharpies and frauds Won't go to Harlem, in Lincolns or Fords Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those broads That's why the lady is a tramp

"L.A. is My Lady" Writer(s): The music she moves to, is music that makes me a dancer I brought her my wildest of dreams, and she came up with the answer I leave behind a part of myself, whenever I leave her But oh, when I'm back in her arms She smiles and then - I am home again 'Cause L.A. is my lady She's always there for me L.A. is my lady She knows how to care for me No lady's sweeter - you know it the moment you meet her I've been in love more times, than I care to remember And love's kept me cool in July and warm in December It may not have lasted, but each time I thought it was heaven You name it, I've been there and back Lookin' for someone who - I'd be faithful to L.A. is my lady She's always there for me L.A. is my lady She knows how to care for me She's good to me - yeah she's good to me And that's why L.A. is my lady - L.A. is my lady And you're lookin' at a man who - doesn't ever plan to Kiss his lady bye-bye 5


"Love's Been Good to Me" Writer(s): Rod McKuen I have been a rover I have walked alone Hiked a hundred highways Never found a home Still in all I'm happy The reason is, you see Once in a while along the way Love's been good to me There was a girl in Denver Before the summer storm Oh, her eyes were tender Oh, her arms were warm And she could smile away the thunder Kiss away the rain Even though she's gone away You won't hear me complain I have been a rover I have walked alone Hiked a hundred highways Never found a home Still in all I'm happy The reason is, you see Once in a while along the way Love's been good to me There was a girl in Portland Before the winter chill We used to go a-courtin' Along October hill And she could laugh away the dark clouds Cry away the snow It seems like only yesterday As down the road I go I've been a rover I have walked alone Hiked a hundred highways Never found a home Still in all I'm happy The reason is, you see Once in a while along the way Love's been good to me

"Love and Marriage" Writer(s): Cahn/van Heusen Love and marriage, love and marriage Go together like a horse and carriage This I tell you brother You can't have one without the other 6


Love and marriage, love and marriage It's an institute you can't disparage Ask the local gentry And they will say it's elementary Try, try, try to separate them It's an illusion Try, try, try, and you will only come To this conclusion Love and marriage, love and marriage Go together like a horse and carriage Dad was told by mother You can't have one without the other

"Mack the Knife" Writer(s): Weill/Brecht/Blitzstein Oh, the shark has pretty teeth dear And he shows 'em, pearly white Just a jack knife has Macheath dear And he keeps it way out of sight When that shark bites with his teeth, dear Scarlet billows begin to spread Fancy gloves though has Macheath dear So there's never, never a trace of red On the sidewalk, one Sunday morning Lies a body, oozin' life Someone's sneaking 'round the corner Could that someone be Mack the Knife From a tugboat, on the river going slow A cement bag is dropping on down You know that cement is for the weight dear You can make a large bet Mackie's back in town My man Louis Miller, he split the scene babe After drawing out all the bread from his stash Now Macheath spends like a sailor Do you suppose our boy, he's done something rash Old Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darrin Did this song nice, Lady Ella too They all sang it, with so much feeling That Old Blue Eyes, he ain't gonna add nothing new But with this big band, jumping behind me Swinging hard, Jack, I now I can't lose When I tell you, all about Mack the Knife babe It's an offer, you can never refuse We got Patrick Williams, Bill Miller playing that piano And this great big band, bringing up the rear All the band cats, in this band now 7


They make the greatest sounds, you're ever gonna hear Oh Sookie Taudry, Jenny Diver, Polly Peachum, Old Miss Lulu Brown Hey the line forms, on the right dear Now that Macheath's back in town You'd better lock your doors, and call the law Because Macheath's back in town

"Girl from Ipanema, The" Writer(s): Jobim/Gimbel/DeMoraes Tall and tan and young and lovely The girl from Ipanema goes walking And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah When she walks, she's like a samba That swings so cool and sways so gentle That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh (Ooh) But I watch her so sadly How can I tell her I love her Yes I would give my heart gladly But each day, when she walks to the sea She looks straight ahead, not at me Tall, (and) tan, (and) young, (and) lovely The girl from Ipanema goes walking And when she passes, I smile - but she doesn't see (doesn't see) (She just doesn't see, she never sees me,...)

"It Was a Very Good Year" Writer(s): When I was seventeen It was a very good year It was a very good year for small town girls And soft summer nights We'd hide from the lights On the village green When I was seventeen When I was twenty-one It was a very good year It was a very good year for city girls Who lived up the stair With all that perfumed hair And it came undone When I was twenty-one When I was thirty-five It was a very good year It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls Of independent means 8


We'd ride in limousines Their chauffeurs would drive When I was thirty-five But now the days grow short I'm in the autumn of the year And now I think of my life as vintage wine >From fine old kegs >From the brim to the dregs And it poured sweet and clear It was a very good year It was a mess of good years

"I Get a Kick Out of You" Writer(s): Porter Verse: My story is much to sad to be told But practically everything leaves me totally cold The only exception I know is the case When I'm out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui Then I suddenly turn and see Your fabulous face Chorus: I get no kick from champagne Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all So tell me why should it be true That I get a kick out of you Some like the perfume from Spain I'm sure that if I took even one sniff It would bore me terrifically too But I get a kick out of you ( ( ( (

Some like the bop-type refrain I'm sure that if, I heard even one riff It would bore me terrifically too But I get a kick out of you

) ) ) )

( ( ( (

Some they may go for cocaine I'm sure that if, I took even one sniff It would bore me terrifically too But I get a kick out of you

) ) ) )

I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me I get a kick though it's clear to see, you obviously do not adore me I get no kick in a plane Flying too high with some gal in the sky Is my idea of nothing to do But I get a kick out of you

"Fly Me to the Moon" Writer(s): Howard Fly me to the moon Let me sing among those stars Let me see what spring is like On Jupiter and Mars In other words, hold my hand In other words, baby kiss me Fill my heart with song Let me sing for ever more You are all I long for All I worship and adore In other words, please be true In other words, I love you

"For Once in My Life" Writer(s): Murden/Miller For once in my life I've got someone who needs me Someone I've needed so long For once unafraid I can go where life leads me And somehow I know I'll be strong For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of Long before I knew Someone warm like you Could make my dreams come true For Not For And

once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me like it's hurt me before once I've got someone I know won't desert me I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say: "This is mine you can't take it" As long as I've got love I know I can make it For once in my life I've got someone who needs me

"Best Is Yet to Come, The" Writer(s): Coleman/Leigh Out of the tree of life, I just picked me a plumb You came along and everything started to hum Still it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come The best is yet to come, and won't that be fine You think you've seen the sun, but you ain't seen it shine Wait till the warm-up is underway Wait till out lips have met 10


Wait till you see that sunshine day You ain't seen nothin' yet The best is yet to come, and won't that be fine The best is yet to come, come the day that your mine Come the day that your mine I'm gonna teach you to fly We've only tasted the wine We're gonna drain that cup dry Wait till your charms are right, for the arms to surround You think you've flown before, but you ain't left the ground Wait till you're locked in my embrace Wait till I hold you near Wait till you see that sunshine place There ain't nothin' like it here The best is yet to come, and won't that be fine The best is yet to come, come the day that your mine

"Come Fly with Me" Writer(s): Cahn/Van Heusen Come fly with me, let's fly let's fly away If you can use, some exotic booze There's a bar in far Bombay Come fly with me, we'll fly we'll fly away Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru In lama land, there's a one man band And he'll toot his flute for you Come fly with me, we'll float down in the blue Once I get you up there, where the air is rarefied We'll just glide, starry eyed Once I get you up there, I'll be holding you so near You may here, angels cheer - because were together Weather wise it's such a lovely day You just say the words, and we'll beat the birds Down to Acapulco Bay It's perfect, for a flying honeymoon - they say Come fly with me, we'll fly we'll fly away

"What Now My Love" Writer(s): What now my love, now that you've left me How can I live through another day Watching my dreams turn to ashes And my hopes turn to bits of clay Once I could see, once I could feel 11


Now I am numb, I've become unreal I walk the night, without a goal Stripped of my heart and my soul What now my love, now that it's over I feel the world falling all around me Here come the stars, tumbling around me There's the sky, where that sea should be What now my love, now that you're gone I'd be a fool to go on and on No one would care, no one would cry If I should live if I should live or die What now my love, now there is nothing Only my last, my last good-bye
