Lyrics

This Could Be the Start of Something

You’re walkin’ along the street, or you’re at a party,
Or else you’re alone and then you suddenly dig;
You’re lookin’ in someone’s eyes,
You suddenly realise
That this could be the start of something big!

You’re lunchin’ at twenty one and watching you diet,
Declining a charlotte russe, accepting a fig,
When out of a clear blue sky
It’s suddenly gal and guy,
And this could be the start of something big!

There’s no controlling
The unrolling
Of your fate, my friend,
Who knows what’s written in the magic book?
But when a lover
You discover
At the gate, my friend,
Invite her in without a second look!

You’re up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi’s,
Or lying at Malibu, alone in the sand;
You suddenly hear a bell,
And right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand!

You’re doin’ your income tax or buyin’ a toothbrush,
Or hurryin’ home because the hour is late,
Then suddenly there you go;
The very next thing you know
Is this could be the start of something great!

You’re havin’ a snowball fight or pickin’ up daisies,
You’re singin’ a happy tune or knockin’ on wood,
When all of a sudden you
Look up and there’s someone new;
Oh, this could be the start of something good!

Your destined lover
You discover
In a frightening flash,
So keep your heart awake, both night and day!
Because the meeting
May be fleeting
As a lightning flash,
And you don’t wanna let it slip away!

You’re watching the sun come up or countin’ your money,
Or else in a dim cafe you’re ordering wine,
Then suddenly there she is,
You wanna be where she is,
And this must be the start of somethin’,
Or the very heart of somethin’,
This could be the start of somethin’ fine!

A Little Bit in Love

I’m a little bit in love
Never felt this way before
Just a little bit in love
Or perhaps a little bit more

When he looks at me
Every thing’s hazy and all out of focus
When he touches me
I’m in the spell of a strange hocus-pocus

It’s so, I don’t know
I’m so, I don’t know
I don’t know but I know
If it’s love then it’s lovely

It’s so nice to be alive
When you meet someone who bewitches you
Will he be my all or did I just fall
A little bit, a little bit in love?

When he looks at me
Every thing’s hazy and all out of focus
When he touches me
I’m in the spell of a strange hocus-pocus

It’s so, I don’t know
I’m so, I don’t know
I don’t know but I know
If it’s love then it’s lovely

It’s so nice to be alive
When you meet someone who bewitches you
Will he be my all or did I just fall
A little bit, a little bit in love?

How Long Has This Been Going On?

I could cry salty tears
Where have I been all these years?
Little wow, tell me now
How long has this been goin’ on?

There were chills up my spine
And some thrills I can’t define
Listen sweet, I repeat
How long has this been goin’ on?

Oh, I feel that I could melt
Into heaven I’m hurled
I know how columbus felt
Finding another world

Kiss me once, then once more
What a dunce I was before
What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been goin’ on?

Dear, when in your arms I creep
That divine rendevous
Don’t wake me if I’m asleeep
Let me dream that it’s true

Kiss me twice, then once more
That makes thrice, let’s make it four
What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been goin’ on?

Let It Be Me

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me

Don’t take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me

To You I’m praying
Here what I’m saying
Please let your heart beat
For me and just me

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me

Easy Living

Living for you is easy living
It’s easy to live when you’re in love
And I’m so in love
There is nothing in life but you

I never regret the years that I’m giving
They’re easy to give when you’re in love
I’m happy to do whatever I do for you

For you maybe I’m a fool
But it’s fun
People say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Darling, it’s grand
They just don’t understand

Living for you is easy living
It’s easy to live when you’re in love
And I’m so in love
There’s nothing in life but you

Message to Martha

Spread your wings for New Orleans
Kentucky bluebird, fly away
And take a message to Martha, message to Martha
She sings each night in some caf?
In her search to find wealth and fame
I hear Martha has gone and changed her name

It’s a year since she was here
Kentucky bluebird, fly away
And take a message to Martha, message to Martha
Tell her I love her more each day
As the train pulled out down the track
Martha promised she’d soon be coming back

Oh, tell her how my heart just breaks in two
Since she journeyed far
And even though her dreams of fame fell through
To me she will always be a star

Spread your wings for New Orleans
Kentucky bluebird, fly away
And take a message to Martha, message to Martha
Tell her to start for home today
When you find her please let her know
Rich or poor, I will always love her so

Fly away, Kentucky bluebird
Fly away, Kentucky bluebird
Fly away, fly away, fly away

Love Was a Song

When did the music start to fade
When did the lyric sound clichéd
When did our hearts no longer sing in harmony
Once we were reaching for the moon
Now we sing a different tune
Love was a song that lost it’s melody

When did tempo start to change
When were the notes beyond our range
When did the bells no longer ring so faithfully
What I would give to hear love’s sound
But there’s silence all around
Love was a song that ended wrong for me

For me there’ll be no matinees on rainy afternoons
No fireside serenades
We started out on key, but then our hearts went out of tune
I didn’t hear it until it was over

For us there’ll be no last romance
No parting kiss
No one last dance
The song is sung
What might have been will never be
Maybe I’ll love again someday
But for now I guess I’ll hear no more refrain

Love was a song that ended wrong
For me there’ll be no more refrain

Love was a song that ended wrong for me

In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning

When the sun is high in the afternoon sky
You can always find something to do
But from dusk till dawn as the clock ticks on
Something happens to you

In the wee small hours of the morning
While the whole wide world is fast asleep
You lie awake and think about the boy
And never ever think of counting sheep

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You’d be his if only he’d call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That’s the time you miss him most of all

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You’d be his if only he’d call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That’s the time you miss him most of all

When October Goes

And when October goes
The snow begins to fly
Above the smokey roofs
I watch the planes go by

The children running home
Beneath a twilight sky
Oh, for the fun of them
When I was one of them

And when October goes
The same old dream appears
And you are in my arms
To share the happy years

I turn my head away
To hide the helpless tears

Oh, how I hate
To see October go

And when October goes
The same old dream appears
And you are in my arms
To share the happy years

I turn my head away
To hide the helpless tears
Oh, how I hate
To see October go

I should be over it now I know
It doesn’t matter much
How old I grow
I hate to see October go

Careless Love

If I was a little bird
I’d fly from tree to tree
Then, I’d build a nest way up in the air
So you bad once could not bother me

Love, oh love, oh careless love
Love, oh love, oh careless love
You’ve broke the heart of many poor boy
But you’ll never break this heart of mine
