Musical Lyrics

#1
They never did return their plunder
The victor gets all the loot.
They carried them home, by thunder,
To rotundas small but cute.
And you've never seens so,
They tell me, such downright domesticity.
With a Roman baby on each knee
Named "Claudius" and "Brute"


#2
Small boy...
Rather pale...
From lack of sleep.
Feed him gruel dinners.
Stop him getting stout.


#3
Some people claim that you are to blame as much as I
Why do you take the trouble to bake my fav'rite pie?
Grantin' your wish I carved our initials on that tree,
Just keep a slice of all the advice you give so free.
Don't praise my charm too much
Don't look so vain with me
Don't stand in the rain with me
----- ---- --- ---- -- ---.


#4
What words of wisdom can I give them,
How can I help to ease their way?

Now they must learn from one another,
Day by day.


#5
All the curses have been ended,
The reverses wiped away.
All is tenderness and laughter
For forever after! 

Happy now and happy hence
And happy ever after! 


#6
Someone to smile once in awhile with;
whenever you're lonesome
I've a happy lot,
considering what I've got.
But, I couldn't do more
Than you do for your poor Father.
Things go asunder
and I wonder why you bother.
Could be, we three get along so famously
'cause
we two have you, 
and I have --- ---
too.


#7
When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky 
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll. 
When you spot a John waiting out in the rain 
Chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane. 
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent 
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal. 
Call it sad, call it funny. 
But it's better than even money 
That the guy's only doing it for some doll. 


#8
I sailed up the Skagerrak 
And sailed down the Kattegat 
Through the harbor and up to the quay 
And there she stands waiting for me 
With a welcome so warm and so gay 
W--------, w-------- C--------- 
W--------, w-------- C--------- 
Friendly old girl of a town 
'Neath her tavern light 
On this merry night 
Let us clink and drink one down


#9
-- ---- ----- - ------
For your eyes to meet and then
Your heart knows in a moment
You will never be alone again

I held her for an instant
But my arms felt sure and strong
-- ---- ----- - ------
To be loved a whole life long...


#10
And were there more 
Than twenty-four hours a day,
They'd be spent in sweet content
Dreamin' away

When skies are gray
When skies are blue
Morning, noon and nighttime too
All I do the whole day through
Is ----- -- ---.


#11
Every morning you greet me
Small and white clean and bright 
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow 
Bloom and grow forever


#12
From the table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
I can hear them now!


#13
There's a place for us, 
A time and place for us. 
Hold my hand and we're halfway there. 
Hold my hand and I'll take you there 


#14
I wake in the loneliness of sunrise
when the deep purple heaven turns blue
And start to pray, as I pray each day, that I'll hear some word from you.
I lie in the l--------- o- e------ looking out on a silver flaked sea
And ask the moon, how soon, how soon, will my love appear to me? 
Will my love appear to me?


#15
There were bells on the hill
But I never heard them ringing,
No, I never heard them at all
---- ----- --- ---.

There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No, I never saw them at all
---- ----- --- ---.


#16
If dreams came true I might have been a better man. 
If dreams came true you might have have set me free. 
But God is kind, for you He had a better plan 
And saved you from the pain of loving me.
And even if I'd not surrendered long ago
All you can ever do for me you've done.
You've been the finest dream a man could ever know:
That this abandoned fight might have been won.
Old voices I had thought long since dead
Whisper of another life I might have led.


Happy Guessing!
