Track Name: I can't give you anything but love
I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby

Dreamin' a while, schemin' a while
We're sure to find happiness and I guess
All the things you've always pined for

Gee, I'd like to see you looking swell, baby
Diamond bracelets, Woolworth doesn't sell, baby

Til that lucky day, you know darn well, baby
I can't give you anything but love
Track Name: Lullaby of Birdland
Lullaby of birdland
That's what I always hear,
When you sigh,
Never in my wordland could there be words to reveal
in a phrase how I feel

Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bill and coo, when they love?
That's the kind of magic music we make with our lips
When we kiss

And there's a weepy old willow
He really knows how to cry,
That's how I'd cry in my pillow
If you should tell me farewell and goodbye

Lullaby of birdland whisper low
Kiss me sweet, and we'll go
Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above
All because were in love
Track Name: There willl never be another you
There will be many other nights like this,
And I'll be standing here with someone new.
There will be other songs to sing,
Another fall, another spring,
But there will never be another you.

There will be other lips that I may kiss,
But they won't thrill me,
Like yours used to do.
Yes, I may dream a million dreams,
But how can they come true,
If there will never, ever be another you?
Track Name: My foolish heart
The night is like a lovely tune
Beware, my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care, my foolish heart

There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
When you are lost in the magic of a kiss

Your lips are much too close to mine
Beware, my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start

For this time, it isn't fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It's love, this time it's love, my foolish heart
Track Name: I've got the world on a string
I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love

I've got a song that I sing
I can make the rain go
Any time I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see - I'm in love

Life's a beautiful thing
As long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so-and-so
If I should ever let go

I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting on the rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love
Track Name: Body and Soul
My heart is sad and lonely
For you I cry
For you, dear, only
Why haven't you seen
I'm all for you
Body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you
Body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear

My life's a wreck your'e making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender
Myself to you
Body and soul
Track Name: All through the night
All through the night,
I delight in your love,
All through the night you're so close to me!

All through the night,
From a height far above,
You and your love brings me ecstasy!

When dawn comes to waken me,
You're never there at all!
I know you've forsaken me
Till the shadows fall,

But then once again I can dream, I've the right
To be close to you all through the night.
Track Name: You've changed
You've changed
That sparkle in your eyes is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
You're breaking my heart
You've changed

You've changed
Your kisses now are so blase
You're bored with me in every way
I can't understand
You've changed

You've forgotten the words, "I love you"
Each memory that we shared
You ignore every star above you
I can't realise you've ever cared
You've changed

You're not the angel I once knew
No need to tell me what we're through
It's all over now
You've changed

/ Don't change,
You're still the one that I adore,
Come cuddle in my arms once more,
Like you did before,
You've changed
