"(Ah, The Apple Trees) When The World Was Young"

"(Ah, The Apple Trees) When The World Was Young"



It isn't by chance I happen to be,
A boulevardier, the toast of Paris.
For over the noise, the talk and the smoke,
I'm good for a laugh, a drink or a jokeI walk in a room, a party or ball,
"Come sit over here" somebody will call.
"A drink for M'sieur, a drink for us all!
But how many times I stop and recall.

Ah, the apple trees,
Blossoms in the breeze,
That we walked among,
Lying in the hay,
Games we used to play,
While the rounds were sung,
Only yesterday, when the world was young.

Wherever I go they mention my name,
And that in itself, is some sort of fame,
"Come by for a drink, we're having a game,"
Wherever I go I'm glad that I came.
The talk is quite gay, the company fine,
There's laughter and lights, and glamour and wine,
And beautiful girls and some of them mine,
But often my eyes see a diff'rent shine.

Ah, the apple trees,
Sunlit memories,
Where the hammock swung,
On our backs we'd lie,
Looking at the sky,
Till the stars were strung,
Only last July when the world was young.

Ah, the apple trees,
Blossoms in the breeze,
That we walked among,
Lying in the hay,
Games we used to play,
While the rounds were sung,
Only yesterday, when the world was young.

While sitting around, we often recall,
The laugh of the year, the night of them all.
The blonde who was so attractive that year,
Some opening night that made us all cheer.
Remember that time we all got so tight,
And Jacques and Antoine got into a fight.
The gendarmes who came, passed out like a light,
I laugh with the rest, it's all very bright.

"(I Don't Stand) A Ghost Of A Chance With You"

"(I Don't Stand) A Ghost Of A Chance With You"



I need your love so badly, I love you oh so madly
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you
I thought at last I'd found you but other loves surround you
And I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you

If you'd surrender just for a tender kiss or two
You might discover that I'm the lover meant for you
And I'd be true but what's the good of scheming
I'm dreaming for I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you
'Cuz I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you

"(Love Is) The Tender Trap"

"(Love Is) The Tender Trap"



You see a pair of laughing eyes
And suddenly your sighing sighs
You're thinking nothing's wrong
You string along, boy, then snap!

Those eyes, those sighs, they're part of the tender trap

You're hand in hand beneath the trees
And soon there's music in the breeze
You're acting kind of smart, until your heart just goes wap!

Those trees, that breeze, they're part of the tender trap

Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot, that's just a dot on the map

You're hooked, you're cooked, you're caught in the tender trap

Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot that's just a dot on the map

And then you wonder how it all came about
It's too late now there's no gettin' out
You fell in love, and love is the tender trap

"A Baby Just Like You"

"A Baby Just Like You"



The season is upon us now
A time for gifts and giving
And as the year draws to its close
I think about my living
The Christmas time when I was young,
The magic and the wonder,
But colors dull and candles dim,
And dark my standing under
O little Zachary, shining light
You've set my soul to dreaming
You've given back my joy in life
And filled me with new meaning

A Savior King was born that day,
A baby just like you,
And as the Magi came with gifts,
I come with my gift too
That peace on Earth fills up your time,
That brotherhood surrounds you.

That you may know the warmth of love,
And wrap it all around you
It's just a wish, a dream I'm told
From days when I was young

Merry Christmas, little Zachary
Merry Christmas, everyone
Merry Christmas, little Zachary
Merry Christmas, everyone

"A Cottage For Sale"

"A Cottage For Sale"



A little dream castle with every dream gone
Is lonely and silent, the shades are all drawn
And my heart is heavy as I gaze upon
A cottage for sale

The lawn we were proud of is waving in hay
A beautiful garden has withered away
Where you planted roses the weeds seem to say
A cottage for sale

From every single window I see your face
But when I reach a window there's empty space
The key's in the mailbox the same as before
But no one is waiting for me anymore
The end of our story is there on the door
A cottage for sale

"A Day In The Life Of A Fool"

"A Day In The Life Of A Fool"



A day in the life of a fool, a sad and a long lonely day
I walk the avenue, and hope I'll run into
The welcome sight of you, coming my way
I stop just across from your door, but you're never home any more
So back to my room, and there in the gloom
I cry tears of good bye
That's the way it will be every day in the life of fool

"A Fine Romance"

"A Fine Romance"



A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes
A fine romance, you won't nestle
A fine romance, you won't wrestle
I might as well play bridge
With my old maid aunt
I haven't got a chance
This is a fine romance

A fine romance, my good fellow
You take romance, I'll take jello
You're calmer than the seals
In the arctic ocean
At least they flap their fins
To express emotion
A fine romance with no quarrels
With no insults and all morals
I've never mussed the crease
In your blue serge pants
I never get the chance
This is a fine romance

"A Foggy Day"

"A Foggy Day"



A foggy day, in London town, it had me low, and it had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm, the British Museum, had lost its charm
How long I wondered, could this thing last, but the age of miracles, it hadn't past
And suddenly, I saw you standing right there
And in foggy London town, the sun was shining everywhere

"A Garden In The Rain"

"A Garden In The Rain"


It was just a garden in the rain
Close to a little leafy lane
A touch of color 'neath skies of gray

The raindrops kissed the flower beds
The blossoms raised their thirsty heads
A perfumed "Thank you" they seemed to say

Surely here was charm beyond compare - to view
Maybe it was just that I was there - with you

It was just a garden in the rain
But then the sun came out again
And sent us happily on our way

[instrumental]

It was just a garden in the rain
But then that sun came out again
And sent us happily on our way
