Lyrics SOMEONE
TO HOLD YOU TOO CLOSE,
SOMEONE
TO HURT YOU TOO DEEP,
SOMEONE
TO SIT IN YOUR CHAIR,
TO RUIN YOUR SLEEP,
TO MAKE YOU AWARE
OF BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE.
SOMEONE
TO NEED YOU TOO MUCH,
SOMEONE
TO KNOW YOU TOO WELL,
SOMEONE
TO PULL YOU UP SHORT,
TO PUT YOU THROUGH HELL,
AND GIVE YOU SUPPORT
IS BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE.
SOMEONE
YOU HAVE TO LET IN,
SOMEONE WHOSE FEELINGS YOU SPARE,
SOMEONE WHO,
LIKE IT OR NOT,
WILL WANT YOU TO SHARE,
A LITTLE A LOT,
IS BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE.
SOMEONE
TO CROWD YOU WITH LOVE,
SOMEONE
TO FORCE YOU TO CARE,
SOMEONE
TO MAKE YOU COME THROUGH,
WHO'LL ALWAYS BE THERE,
AS FRIGHTENED AS YOU
OF BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE.

SOMEBODY
HOLD ME TOO CLOSE,
SOMEBODY
HURT ME TOO DEEP,
SOMEBODY
SIT IN MY CHAIR
AND RUIN MY SLEEP
AND MAKE ME AWARE
OF BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE.
SOMEBODY
NEED ME TOO MUCH,
SOMEBODY
KNOW ME TOO WELL
SOMEBODY
PULL ME UP SHORT
AND PUT ME THROUGH HELL
AND GIVE ME SUPPORT
FOR BEING ALIVE,

MAKE ME ALIVE,
MAKE ME ALIVE.
MAKE ME CONFUSED,
MOCK ME WITH PRAISE,
LET ME BE USED,
VARY MY DAYS.
BUT ALONE IS ALONE,
NOT ALIVE.

SOMEBODY
CROWD ME WITH LOVE,
SOMEBODY
FORCE ME TO CARE.
SOMEBODY
LET ME COME THROUGH,
AS FRIGHTENED AS YOU,
TO HELP US SURVIVE
BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE,
BEING ALIVE!

Lyrics I DON'T CARE MUCH,
GO OR STAY.
I DON'T CARE VERY MUCH
EITHER WAY.
HEARTS GROW HARD
ON A WINDY STREET.
LIPS GROW COLD
WITH THE RENT TO MEET.
SO IF YOU KISS ME,
IF WE TOUCH,
WARNING'S FAIR,
I DON'T CARE
VERY MUCH.

I DON'T CARE MUCH,
GO OR STAY.
I DON'T CARE VERY MUCH
EITHER WAY.
WORDS SOUND FALSE
WHEN YOUR COAT'S
TOO THIN.
FEET DON'T WALTZ
WHEN THE ROOF
CAVES IN.
SO IF YOU KISS ME,
IF WE TOUCH,
WARNING'S FAIR,
I DON'T CARE
VERY MUCH.

Lyrics I'M DREAMING TONIGHT
OF A PLACE I LOVE,
EVEN MORE
THAN I USUALLY DO.
AND ALTHOUGH I KNOW
IT'S A LONG ROAD
BACK,
I PROMISE YOU...

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,
YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.
PLEASE HAVE SNOW
AND MISTLETOE,
AND PRESENTS
ON THE TREE.
CHRISTMAS EVE
WILL FIND ME
WHERE THE LOVELIGHT
GLEAMS.
I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,
IF ONLY IN MY DREAMS.

Alt. Title If You Were The Only Boy In The World

Writers Nat D. Ayer, Clifford Grey

Genres Standard, Ballad

Recorded 1965

Lyrics male version:

SOMETIMES WHEN I FEEL BAD
AND THINGS LOOK BLUE,
I WISH I HAD A PAL,
SAY, ONE LIKE YOU!
SOMEONE WITHIN MY HEART
TO BUILD A THRONE,
SOMEONE WHO'D NEVER PART,
TO CALL MY OWN.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD,
AND I WERE THE ONLY BOY,
NOTHING ELSE WOULD MATTER
IN THE WORLD TODAY,
WE COULD GO ON LIVING
IN THE SAME OLD WAY.
A GARDEN OF EDEN
JUST MADE FOR TWO,
WITH NOTHING
TO MAR OUR JOY.
I WOULD SAY
SUCH WONDERFUL THINGS TO YOU,
THERE WOULD BE
SUCH WONDERFUL THINGS TO DO.
IF YOU WERE THE ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD,
AND I WERE THE ONLY BOY.

Lyrics verse 1:
DON'T EVEN GO
TO A MOVIE SHOW,
IF YOU ARE NOT BY MY SIDE
I JUST STAY HOME
BY MY RADIO,
BUT I AM SATISFIED.
ALL MY FLIRTING DAYS ARE GONE,
ON THE LEVEL FROM NOW ON!

Chorus:
KEEPIN' OUT OF MISCHIEF NOW,
REALLY AM IN LOVE,
AND HOW!
I'M THROUGH PLAYIN' WITH FIRE,
IT'S YOU WHOM I DESIRE.
ALL THE WORLD CAN PLAINLY SEE,

I HAVE TOLD THEM IN ADVANCE,
THEY CAN'T BREAK UP OUR ROMANCE.
LIVIN' UP TO EV'RY VOW,
KEEPIN' OUT OF MISCHIEF NOW.

verse 2:
DON'T GO FOR ANY EXCITEMENT NOW,
BOOKS ARE MY BEST COMPANY
ALL MY OPINIONS HAVE CHANGED SOMEHOW,
OLD FASHIONED AS CAN BE.
WHEN YOU REALLY LEARN TO CARE
THERE'S A THRILL IN SOLITAIRE.

Chorus:
KEEPIN' OUT OF MISCHIEF NOW,
REALLY AM IN LOVE,
AND HOW!
I'M THROUGH PLAYIN' WITH FIRE,
IT'S YOU WHOM I DESIRE.
ALL THE WORLD CAN PLAINLY SEE,

Lyrics verse:
LOVE'S BEGINNING
HEARTS ENCHANTED
FULL OF BRIGHT
NEW DREAMS.
BUT WE CAN'T TAKE LOVE
FOR GRANTED
FOR TO ME IT SEEMS...

Chorus:
A NEW LOVE IS LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD,
TENDER AND SWEET
AND IN NEED OF CARE
PRECIOUS INDEED
IS THE LOVE WE SHARE,
LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD.
LIKE A TINY BABY
'TIL IT GROWS UP STRONG,
YOU LULLABY A NEW LOVE
WITH A HAPPY SONG.
BECAUSE A NEW LOVE IS LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD,
CHERISH AND GUARD IT
AND HOLD IT CLOSE
GIVE IT YOUR HEART
AND JUST PRAY IT GROWS
AND GROWS
TO BE SOMETHING SURE,
SOMETHING GRAND,
SOMETHING
HEAVEN MUST HAVE PLANNED,
LIKE A LOVELY NEWBORN CHILD,
LIKE A NEWBORN CHILD.

Lyrics verse:
YOU KISSED ME ONCE
BY MISTAKE,
THOUGHT I WAS SOMEBODY ELSE.
I FELT THAT KISS
AND I ENVIED
THAT SOMEBODY ELSE.
I WANTED YOU
FOR MYSELF.
I GUESS I WAS SHAMELESS
AND BOLD.
BUT I MADE A PLAN
IN MY HEART,
I'VE NEVER BREATHED,
I'VE NEVER TOLD.

Chorus:
I MUST TRY
TO MAKE THE MAN LOVE ME,
MAKE THE MAN LOVE ME NOW.
BYE AND BYE,
I'LL MAKE THE MAN HAPPY,
I KNOW HOW.
HE MUST SEE
HOW BADLY I WANT HIM,
WANT HIM JUST AS HE IS.
MAY I SAY
THAT SHOULD THE MAN ASK ME,
I'LL BE HIS.

CAN I TELL THE MAN
JUST HOW DEARLY BLESSED
WE WOULD BE?
ALL THE BEAUTY
I SEE SO CLEARLY,
OH, WHY CAN'T HE?

SO, I PRAY TO HEAVEN
ABOVE ME,
PRAY UNTIL DAY
GROWS DIM,
FOR A WAY
TO MAKE THE MAN LOVE ME
AS I LOVE HIM.

Lyrics I LOVE YOUR LOVIN' ARMS
THEY HOLD A WORLD OF CHARMS,

Lyrics verse 1:
FATHER HAS A BUSINESS,
STRICTLY SECOND HAND.
EVERYTHING FROM TOOTHPICKS
TO A BABY GRAND.
STUFF IN OUR APARTMENT
CAME FROM FATHER'S STORE,
EVEN THINGS I'M WEARING
SOMEONE WORE BEFORE.
IT'S NO WONDER
THAT I FEEL ABUSED.
I NEVER HAVE A THING
THAT AIN'T BEEN USED.

Chorus 1:
I'M WEARING
SECOND HAND HATS,
SECOND HAND CLOTHES,
THAT'S WHY THEY CALL ME
SECOND HAND ROSE.
EVEN OUR PIANO
IN THE PARLOR
FATHER BOUGHT
FOR TEN CENTS
ON THE DOLLAR.
SECOND HAND PEARLS,
I'M WEARING
SECOND HAND CURLS.
I NEVER GET A SINGLE THING
THAT'S NEW.
EVEN JAKE THE PLUMBER,
HE'S THE MAN I ADORE,
HAD THE NERVE
TO TELL ME
HE'S BEEN MARRIED
BEFORE.
EV'RYONE KNOWS
THAT I'M JUST
SECOND HAND ROSE
FROM SECOND AVENUE.

verse 2:
EACH ONE IN THE FAMILY
KICKS THE WHOLE DAY LONG.
EVERYONE'S DISGUSTED,
EVERYTHING IS WRONG.
SECOND HAND DOGGIE,
SECOND HAND CAT,
SECOND HAND WELCOME,
SECOND HAND MAT.
I THINK FATHER'S HEAD
IS MADE OF WOOD.
HE BRINGS HOME
LOTS OF THINGS
THAT AIN'T NO GOOD.

Chorus 2:
I'M WEARING
SECOND HAND SHOES,
SECOND HAND HOSE,
ALL THE GIRLS HAND ME
THEIR SECOND HAND BEAUX.
EVEN MY PAJAMAS
WHEN I DON THEM
HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE'S INITIALS
ON THEM.
SECOND HAND RINGS,
I'M SICK OF
SECOND HAND THINGS,
I NEVER GET
WHAT OTHER GIRLIES DO.
ONCE
WHILE STROLLING
THROUGH THE RITZ
A GIRL GOT MY GOAT,
SHE NUDGED HER FRIEND
AND SAID,
OH! LOOK,
THERE'S MY OLD FUR COAT.
EV'RYONE KNOWS
THAT I'M JUST
SECOND HAND ROSE
FROM SECOND AVENUE.

Lyrics verse:
YOU WHO HAVE DREAMS,
IF YOU ACT THEY WILL COME TRUE!
TO TURN YOUR DREAMS TO A FACT,
IT'S UP TO YOU!
IF YOU HAVE THE SOUL
AND THE SPIRIT,
NEVER FEAR IT,
YOU'LL SEE IT THROUGH.
HEARTS CAN INSPIRE OTHER HEARTS
WITH THEIR FIRE.
FOR THE STRONG OBEY
WHEN A STRONG MAN
SHOWS THEM THE WAY!

Chorus:
GIVE ME SOME MEN
WHO ARE STOUTHEARTED MEN
WHO WILL FIGHT
FOR THE RIGHT
THEY ADORE.
START ME WITH TEN,
WHO ARE STOUTHEARTED MEN
AND I'LL SOON GIVE YOU
TEN THOUSAND MORE.
OH!
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER
AND BOLDER AND BOLDER
THEY GROW
AS THEY GO
TO THE FORE!
THEN THERE'S NOTHING
IN THE WORLD
CAN HALT
OR MAR A PLAN,
WHEN STOUTHEARTED MEN
CAN STICK TOGETHER
MAN TO MAN!

Lyrics WHEN THE SUN COMES OUT
AND THE RAIN
STOPS BEATING
ON MY WINDOW PANE
WHEN THE SUN COMES OUT
THERE'LL BE BLUEBIRDS
AT MY DOOR
SINGING
LIKE THEY DID
BEFORE
THAT OLD STORM
BROKE OUT
AND MY MAN
WALKED OFF
AND LEFT ME
IN THE RAIN.
THOUGH HE'S GONE,
I DOUBT
IF HE'LL STAY AWAY
FOR GOOD,
I'D STOP LIVING
IF HE SHOULD.
LOVE IS FUNNY
IT'S NOT ALWAYS
PEACHES,
CREAM,
AND HONEY.
JUST WHEN
EVERYTHING
LOOKED BRIGHT
AND SUNNY,
SUDDENLY
THE CYCLONE CAME.
I'LL NEVER
BE THE SAME
'TIL THAT SUN
COMES OUT,
AND THE RAIN
STOPS BEATING
ON MY WINDOW PANE.
IF MY HEART
HOLDS OUT,
LET IT RAIN
AND LET IT POUR,
IT MAY NOT BE LONG
BEFORE
THERE'S A KNOCKING
AT MY DOOR,
THEN YOU'LL KNOW
THE ONE I LOVED
WALKED IN
WHEN THE SUN COMES OUT.

Lyrics WILL HE LIKE ME
WHEN WE MEET?
WILL THE SHY
AND QUIET GIRL
HE'S GOING TO SEE
BE THE GIRL
THAT HE'S IMAGINED ME
TO BE?
WILL HE LIKE ME?
WILL HE LIKE
THE GIRL HE SEES?
IF HE DOESN'T
WILL HE KNOW
ENOUGH TO KNOW
THAT THERE'S MORE TO ME
THAN I MAY ALWAYS SHOW?
WILL HE LIKE ME?

WILL HE KNOW
THAT THERE'S A WORLD
OF LOVE
WAITING TO WARM HIM?
HOW I'M HOPING
THAT HIS EYES AND EARS
WON'T MISINFORM HIM.

WILL HE LIKE ME,
WHO CAN SAY?
OH, THIS EVENING
SEEMS A MILLION YEARS
AWAY.
IT'S INSANITY
TO WORRY SO
ALL DAY.
I'LL TRY NOT TO.
WILL HE LIKE ME?
HE'S JUST GOT TO.

Interlude:
WHEN I AM IN MY ROOM
ALONE
AND I WRITE,
THOUGHTS COME EASILY,
WORDS COME FLUENTLY
THEN.
THAT'S HOW IT IS
WHEN I'M ALONE.
BUT TONIGHT,
THERE'S NO HIDING
BEHIND
MY PAPER AND PEN.

WILL HE KNOW
THAT THERE'S A WORLD
OF LOVE
WAITING TO WARM HIM?
HOW I'M HOPING
THAT HIS EYES AND EARS
WON'T MISINFORM HIM.

WILL HE LIKE ME,
WHO CAN SAY?
OH, THIS EVENING
SEEMS A MILLION YEARS
AWAY.
IT'S INSANITY
TO WORRY SO ALL DAY.
I'LL TRY NOT TO.
WILL HE LIKE ME?
HE'S JUST GOT TO.

WILL HE LIKE ME?
WILL HE LIKE ME?
