RHUM AND COCA-COLA If you ever go down Trinidad They make you feel so very glad Calypso sing and make up rhyme Guarantee you one real good fine time Drinkin’ rum and Coca-Cola Go down Point Koomahnah Both mother and daughter Workin’ for the Yankee dollar Oh, beat it man, beat it Since the Yankee come to Trinidad They got the young girls all goin’ mad Young girls say they treat ‘em nice Make Trinidad like paradise Drinkin’ rum and Coca-Cola

Go down Point Koomahnah Both mother and daughter Workin’ for the Yankee dollar Oh, you vex me, you vex me From Chicachicaree to Mona’s Isle Native girls all dance and smile Help soldier celebrate his leave Make every day like New Year’s Eve .... It’s a fact, man, it’s a fact In old Trinidad, I also fear The situation is mighty queer Like the Yankee girl, the native swoon When she hear der Bingo croon

CIRIBIRIBIN When the moon hangs low in Napoli There’s a handsome gondolier Every night he sings so happily So his lady love can hear In a manner so gravissimo He repeats his serenade And his heart beats so fortissimo When she raises her Venetian shade Ciribiribin, ciribiribin, ciribiribin Ciribiribin, he waits for her each night beneath her balcony Ciribiribin, he begs to hold her tight, but no, she won’t agree Ciribiribin, she throws a rose and blows a kiss from up above

PENNSYLVANIA 6-5000 Numbers I get by the dozen Everyone’s uncle and cousin But I can’t live without buzzin’ Pennsylvania 6-5000 I got a sweetie I know there Someone who sets me aglow there, Gives me the sweetest “Hello there” Pennsylvania 6-5000 We don’t say, “How are you?” And very seldom ask, “What’s new?” Instead we start and end each call With, “Baby, confidentially, I love you!” Maybe it sounds a bit funny When I’m away from my honey Here’s what I do with my money


I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH

NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT

I love you much too much I’ve known it from the start But yet my love is such I can’t control my heart

Holdin’ hands at midnight ‘neath a starry sky Nice work if you can get it And you can get it if you try

I love you much too much I ask myself what for Then, darling, when we touch Mmmm, I love you more Perhaps I hold your heart too tightly But who am I to say If I should hold it lightly It might slip away I love you much too much

You’ve never really known I love you oh so much I’m yours alone Perhaps I hold your heart too tightly But who am I to say If I should hold it lightly It might slip away I love you much too much You’ve never really known, oh no, oh no, you’ve never known I love you much too much, too much, I’m yours alone

Strollin’ with the one girl Sighin’ sigh after sigh Nice work if you can get it And you can get it if you try Just imagine someone Waiting at the cottage door Where two hearts become one Who could ask for anything more? Loving one who loves you And then takin’ that vow

Nice work if you can get it And if you get it, won’t you tell me how? Holdin’ hands at midnight ‘neath a starry sky And strollin’ with the one girl Sighing sigh after sigh Just imagine someone Waiting at the cottage door Where two hearts become one Who could ask for anything more? Loving one who loves you And then takin’ that vow Nice work if you can get it And if you get it, won’t you tell me


THE FERRYBOAT SERENADE I have never been aboard a steamer

While sweethearts are romancing

I am just content to be a dreamer

Life is like a mardi-gras

Even if I could afford a steamer

Funiculi, funicula

I will take the ferry boat every time

Happy, we cling together

I love to ride the ferry

Happy, we sing together

Where music is so merry

Happy, with the ferry boat serenade

There’s a man who plays the concertina

I am happy, very, very happy

On the moonlit upper deck arena While boys and girls are dancing

When we’re on the ferry The music is so merry There’s a man who plays the con-
