I've just hijacked this really, ell gave me the idea with his post on song lyrics. You know how sometimes I feel a song coming on, well I can just come in here and sing to myself without being a nuisance. If anyone else takes a notion they can come in and sing a wee song, is that ok? rolleyes.gif

A your adorable.

B your so beautiful.

C your a cutie full of charm.

D your delighful.

and I don't know the rest, I'll try to be sensible next time.

We could end up with a whole world of songs here you never know!

Teeny tongue.gif
Gee but it's great after being out late walking my baby back home
Arm in Arm over meadow and farm
Walking my a baby back home
We go along harmonising a song or I'm reciting a poem
The hours go by and they give me the eye.......................
Great topic Melody. I can feel a song come over me right now and I just have to burst into feverish musical high pitch. It's awful though, when I'm in public and I start yelling my head off!
Cannae sing for tuppence, but whit can ah dae?
I love this particular song. Brings a wee tear to ma eye, so it does.

Maybe I didn't love you quite as good as I should have,
Maybe I didn't hold you quite as often as I could have,
Little things I should have said and done,
I just never took the time.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.

Maybe I didn't hold you all those lonely, lonely times,
And I guess I never told you, I'm so happy that you're mine,
If I made you feel second best,
I'm sorry, I was blind.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind,
Oh Melody,whit hiv ye done ,I was searching on Winmx for this one ,My sister Annie ,used to sing it , she sang it at Barrowland,wi Billy McGregors band a ,Sarah Vaughan number

I'll take you dear ,anyway you are ,a sinner or saint,
Doesn't matter, what they say you are,I'll have no complaint.
whether it's foolish or wise dear,
I'll go along trustingly,
they say the devils in your eyes dear ,
but you look like an angel to me,
I won't ask you ,what the past has been ,
the dreams you have had,all the blessings,
I'll take with the sin,the good with the bad,
who cares what people say of you,
who cares what pictures they paint,
all I know is that I love you ,
saint or sinner,sinner or saint ,who cares!!!!
Melody I remember that one right through.
Need help on this wan!
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday,
I love you,
January February into March and April, same way too,
May June and July,
I`ll never let a day go by,
Without a kiss for you to remember?
Heres where I get stuck, i remember part of the rest?
A certain smile biggrin.gif a certain face
can lead an unsuspecting heart on a merry chase
A fleeting glance can say so many lovely things
Suddenly I know why my heart sings
Yuo love a while and then live knows
You try to hide the rears inside with a cheerful pose
But in the hush of night exactly like a bitter sweet refrain
Comes that certain smile to steal your heart away

Heart of my heart,
I love that melody,
Heart of my heart,
Brings home sweet memories,
When we were kids,
On the corner of the streets,
We were rough and ready guys,
But o how we could harmonise
Heart of my heart, When friends were dearer then,
We thought we'd never paaaaart, I know a tear could glisten
If once more I could listen,
To the gang who sang Heart of my Heart
Heart of my heaaaaart,
Whits the rest????
Well no wonder I love you all, what a brilliant bunch, I've been singing all those wonderful words here.
I love singing and music, it is an instant mood changer.
I'm away to think of another one.
Love you all XXX
It was just one of those things
Just one of those crazy things
One of those bells that now and then rings
It was just one of those things
It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
Just one of those things
If we'd thought a bit of the end of it
When we started painting the town
We'd have been aware that our love affair was too hot not to cool down
So goodbye Dear and Amen and heres hoping that we meet now and then, it was great fun but it was just one of those things.......
Wonderful to see you singing on here again Melody,We need singing and humor . rolleyes.gif One wee song I've been humming to myself lately Iis "When you grow to old to dream I'll have you to remember" just a few words of the song there,but they bring me comfort. cool.gif
Amazing how much we remember -

Little Things Mean A Lot

Blow me a kiss across the room
Say I look nice when I'm not
Touch my hair as you pass my chair
Little things mean a lot

Give me your arm as we cross the street
Call me at six on the dot
A line a day when you're far away
Little things mean a lot

Think there's something in between here

Send me the warmth of a secret smile
To show me you haven't forgot
For always and ever, now and forever
Little things mean a lot

Anybody know the rest?
Fearn - Send me the warmth of a secret smile

Does that no jist make your toes curl up!! rolleyes.gif

Dont have to buy me diamonds & pearls champagne sables or such
I never cared much for diamonds or pearls
Cos honestly honey they just cost money
Give me your arm as i cross the way
Give me a shoulder to cry on
For always and ever
Thats now and forever
Little things mean a lot
Betty thinking about you brought on this one... rolleyes.gif

Hey Good lookin'
What ya got cookin'
How's about cookin' somethin' up with me
Hey Sweet Baby, don''t a mean maybe.
......... what's the next line?
OOOH! Thanks guys! My toes are curling and I've got ducky bumps all over!

Now what about this biggrin.gif

It had to be you, wonderful you.................I wandered around and finally found.....................Nat King Cole? - I have a CD somewhere........
That's one to die for Fearn rolleyes.gif
Lights camara an ackshin tongue.gif

The night is bitter
The stars have lost therr glitter
The winds grow colder
And suddenly you're older
An all because of the man that got away

No more his eager call
The writings on the wall
The dreams you dreamed have all gone astray

The man that won you
Has run aff an undone you
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning
I don't know what happened
It's all a crazy game
No more that all time thrill
Cos you've been through the mill
And never a new love will be the same

Good riddance goodbye, every trick of his your on to
but fools will be fools an wherrs he gaun tooooooo

The road gets rougher
It's lonlier and tougher
With hope you'll burn up
Tomorrow he may turn up
There is jist no let up to live long night an daaaaaayaayy
Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than.....

A one man woman
Looking for the man that got away
The man thaaaat got awaaaaaaayyyyyyyy

Smashin wee topic here Melody , sang ma favourite again biggrin.gif
In all the word theres only you
can fill my heart with gladness, when i am near you
in all the world theres just one dream, when i alone can cheer you
until the day we meet again No Sun No moon
will be there to guide me !
without your love, this world would be
darkness & misery ,thro all eternity
i give my love for all to see
you are the only one in all the world,

sung by the great Dorothy Squires, roger moores wife I believe(then) !!! yes of 007 james bond fame!!! I sing all the time @ the drop of one word i get a song to go with it, one day i did this with my grandson hunter, thinking i could get away with story reading, he said this is book time to look & see words, no singing!! put in my place!!!!!

I'll try to get some olddies, my dad sang all the time,meantime keep on singing
How's this fur an auldie?? (Sung by Kay Starr)

Watch it flow right along where history was made by steam boat
M-e-m-p-h-i-s, Memphis is the town I mean
A way down yonder in the land of cotton
Folks like mine are near forgotten
What a wonderful thrill it is to be
Down in Memphis, Tennessee

..... someone like to take over ...

Guy Mitchell:

Today I passed you on the street,
And my heart fell at your feet,
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you,
Somebody else stood by your side,
And he looked so satisfied,
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you.

It's hard to know another's lips have kissed you,
And held you just the way I used to do,
Oh heaven only knows how much I missed you,
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you.

A picture from the past came slowly stealing,
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you,
Then suddenly I got that old time feeling,
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you.

Or, how about ... (hope the words are right)

I'm the lonesomest gal in town
Everybody has thrown me down
I've got no angel child to ever call me dear
Got no honey man for me to cuddle near
Well I'm learnin' to roll ma eyes
And some day you may be surprised
When I steal someone's lovin' man
and kiss him with a smack
Ah'll hug him and ah'll squeeze him
But I'll never give him back
Cos I'm lonesome, so very lonesome
I'm the lonesomest gal in this here town

If you read in the paper some day
How some poor girl has passed away
Don't shed a tear if you should hear
That gal was me and if you see
My picture in the paper with a smile on my face
I was broken hearted that smile was out of place
If you want to save a girl from her grave
I need a man if you can ......

Teeny tongue.gif
When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
and dont be afraid of the dark
at the end of a storm there's 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 thrown
walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Kay Star singing the wheel of fortune, anyone know the words????

Snap your fingers, turn around about,
Shake your shoulders, go to town about,
Hi de ho down, lets get low down,
That's calling rythm???
Are these the right words????

As I was slowing passing,
An orphans home one day,
I stopped in for a moment,
Just to watch the children play,
Alone a boy was standing,
And when I asked hime why,
He turned with eyes, that could not see,
And he began to cry....
I'm nobody's child, I'm nooooobuuuudys child,
I'm like a floweeeer, just growing wild,
No Mummies kisses and no Daddy's smile,
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

God the memories of these songs

keep em coming

biggrin.gif tho your heart is aching
biggrin.gif even tho its breaking
when there are clouds in the sky
you'll get by
if you smile through your tears and sorrow
smile and maybe tomorrow
you'll see the sun shining through if you just SMILE
annie laurie
laugh.gif how about
In a shady nook
By a babbling Brook
That's where I fell in Love with you

Cant remember his Name that sang this, but I remember the Radio Show every Thursday Night (PM (the 50's)
It wis Donald Peers annie ma eldest sister yased tae listen tae that radio show

Ah yes i remember it well biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
George Muir
Wasn't it also Donald Peers that sang (1948):

There's a tree in the meadow,
With a stream drifting by,
And carved upon that tree I see,
"I love you till I die".

Then further on down Lovers' Lane,
A silhouette I see,
I know you're kissing someone else,
I wish that it was me.

I will always remember,
That look in your eye,
The day you carved upon that tree,
"I love you till I die".
dont remeber that yin george

G/nite sweethearts well its time ti go

ma bedtime good nite all
Summer journeys to Niagra and to other places
Aggravate all our cares we'll save our fares
I've a cosy little flat in what is known as old Manhattan
We'll settle down right here in town
We'll have Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island too
It's lovely going through the zoo
It's very fancy on old Delancey Street you know
The subway charms are so
When balmy breezes flow to and fro
And tell me what street compares with Mott street in July
Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by
The great big city's a wonderous toy
Just made for a girl and boy
Well turn Manhattan into a isle of joy


Teeny tongue.gif

(Manhattan - by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald - sadly deceased))
Marion, thanks for Nobody's child - my grandmother used to sing that - lovely memories.

Teeny tongue.gif
Donald peers I believe was Welsh, did he no sing. I love those dear folk and gentle people, who lived in my home town,
I love those dear folk and gentle people who`ll never never let you down.
George Muir
There could never be a portrait of my love,
For nobody could paint a dream,
You will never see a portrait of my love,
For miracles are never seen.

Anyone who sees her,
Soon forgets the Mona Lisa,
It would take I know,
A Michaelangelo,
And he would need the glow of dawn,
That lights the sky above,
To try to paint a portrait of my love.

Matt Monroe, early 60s
Hey haud on here, its wan thing daein yer ain thing, but a asked fur help wae a song, even called Mags, and she knew the song, where is she.

Ifound my thrill on blueberry hill

the moon stood still on b*******hill
and it lingered until my dreams came true
the wind in the willows played
loves sweet melodies
but all of those vows we made
were never to be
tho we're apart your part of me still
for you were my thrill up on blueberry hill

rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif betty2
And the encore tae that

Memories from the corner of my mind
misty watered coloured memories
of the way we were
scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
smiles we gave to one another of the way we were
biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
could it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line
if we had the chance to do it all again
tell me would we could we
memories are so beautiful and yet
much too painful to remember
we simply choose to forget
but its the laughter we will remember
whenever we remember the way we were
This wan fur mags an hubert
