Alt. Title Crying Myself To Sleep

Writers Ben Raleigh, Felix Manuel Rodriguez (aka Bobby Capo)

Genres Standard, Latin, Pop

Recorded 1960

Lyrics LA OTRA NOCHE,
CUANDO LLAME
A TU PUERTA,
SABIENDO YO QUE
HAY ESTABAS
TE NEGASTE
A CONTESTAR.
YA ERA TARDE,
PENS QUE ESTABAS
DORMIDA,
PERO DUDANDO MORIA
Y ME EMPEC
A PREGUNTAR.

QUIEN LE ESTAR
REPITIENDO
PATA BRA YA MIAS?
QUIEN LE ESTARA
DESTROZANDO
SUAMORQUE ES MI GUIA?
QUIEN SE ESTARA
HACIENDO
DUENO DE SU
VIDA LOCA?
QUIEN ESTARA
DESPOJANDOME
E SU TERNURA?

ESA NOCHE!
FUE QUE SUPE
QUE TA AMABA,
PUES LOS CELOS
MEMATABAN
Y LLOPRANDO
YO ME FUI.
ESA NOCHE!
CON MI MENTE
BATALLANDO,
ME FUI A MI CASA
LLORANDO
Y LLORANDO
ME DORMI.

(English lyric by Ben Raleigh):
EVERY EVENING
I FEEL SO LONELY
WITHOUT YOU,
WHEN I START THINKING
ABOUT YOU,
I CRY MYSELF
TO SLEEP.
EVERY EVENING
MY HUNGRY HEART
REMINISCES,
WHEN I REMEMBER
YOUR KISSES,
I CRY MYSELF
TO SLEEP.

BUT THERE IS REALLY
NO SLEEP
FOR AN UNHAPPY LOVER,
THIS IS
THE HEARTBREAKING TRUTH
THAT I HAD
TO DISCOVER.
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
I DO NOTHING
BUT KEEP DREAMING
OF YOU;
I CAN'T FORGET
THAT I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU.

OH, MY DARLING,
NO ONE ON EARTH
CAN REPLACE YOU,
IF MY ARMS
LONG TO
EMBRACE YOU,
WHAT CAN I DO
BUT WEEP?
SO FORGIVE ME,
TELL ME
YOU WANT US TOGETHER,
DON'T LET ME GO
ON FOREVER,
CRYING MYSELF
TO SLEEP.

Lyrics Spanish lyrics:
QUE SE QUEDE
EL INFINITO
SIN ESTRELLAS,
O QUE PIERDA
EL ANCHO
MAR SU INMENSIDAD.
PERO EL NEGRO
DE TUS
OJOS QUE
NO MUERA,
Y EL CANELA
DE TU PIEL
SE QUE
DI IGUAL.
SI PERDIERA
EL ARCO IRIS
SU BELLAZA,
Y LAS FLORES
U PERFUME
Y SU COLOR,
NO SERIA
TAN INMENSA
MITRISTEZA,
COMO A QUELLA
DE QUEDARME
SIN TU AMOR

ME IMPORTAS
TU Y TU Y TU
Y SOLAMENTE
TU Y TU Y TU
ME IMPORTAS
TU Y TU Y TU
Y NADIE
MAS QUE TU.
OJOS NEGROS
PIEL CANELA
QUE ME LLEGAN
A DESESPERAR,
ME IMPORTAS
TU Y TU Y TU
Y SOLAMENTE
TU Y TU Y TU
ME IMPORTAS
TU Y TU Y TU
Y NADIE
MAS QUE TU.


English Lyrics:

UNTIL TONIGHT - English Lyric by Al Stillman:

verse:
I HAVE BEEN
TO MANY INTERESTING PLACES
WITH SOME MEN
I ADMIRED MORE OR LESS,
I HAVE SEEN SOME
RATHER FASCINATING FACES,
BUT THEY LACKED
A CERTAIN CHARM
THAT YOU POSSESS.
I HAVE GIVEN
LOTS OF GUYS
MY PRIVATE NUMBER,
IT'S A NUMBER
THEY MIGHT
AS WELL FORGET.
THERE WAS NO ONE
I DREAMED OF
IN MY SLUMBER,
BUT IT'S QUITE
A DIFFERENT STORY
SINCE WE MET:

Chorus:
I NEVER LIVED
UNTIL TONIGHT,
I MEAN
I NEVER LOVED
UNTIL TONIGHT,
YOU GAVE MY HEART
A THRILL TONIGHT,
A THRILL
IT NEVER KNEW!
YOU'RE SO NECESSARY
TO THE FUTURE
THAT I HAVE
IN VIEW,
I HAD NO FUN
UNTIL TONIGHT,
NO ONE
AND ONLY ONE
UNTIL TONIGHT.
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT LOVE
COULD REALLY DO,
NO,
NOT UNTIL
TONIGHT.

I HAD A LIST
UNTIL TONIGHT,
OF PLEASURES
I HAD MISSED
UNTIL TONIGHT,
I NEVER KISSED
UNTIL TONIGHT
THE WAY I DO
WITH YOU!
YOU'RE SO NECESSARY
TO THE FUTURE
I HAVE IN VIEW,
I WALKED ALONE
UNTIL TONIGHT,
NO LOVE
TO CALL MY OWN
UNTIL TONIGHT,
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT LOVE
COULD REALLY DO,
NO,
NOT UNTIL TONIGHT.


A-DING, A-DONG - English Lyric by Al Stillman:

verse:
MAKE THE MOST
OF EVERY MOMENT
YOU'RE GIVEN,
THAT'S THE MEANING
OF AN OLD
FAMILIAR RHYME.
FOR THE WORLD
WOULD BE
A BRIGHTER PLACE
TO LIVE IN
IF YOU THOUGHT
A BIT MORE HIGHLY
OF YOUR TIME.
IF YOU GAVE
THE MATTER
DEEP CONSIDERATION,
YOU MIGHT COME AROUND
TO MY PHILOSOPHY
IF THERE'S SOMETHING
MORE THAN LIVING
FOR THE MOMENT,
FOR THE MOMENT
I DON'T KNOW WHAT
IT COULD BE.

Chorus:
A NEW BORN ROSE,
A-DING, A-DONG,
HOW BEAUTIFUL
IT GROWS,
A-DING, A-DONG,
AND HEAVEN KNOWS,
A-DING, A-DONG,
HOW SUDDENLY IT GOES!
PRECIOUS HOURS
FADE LIKE FLOWERS
AND IT'S LATER
THAN IT'S EVER BEEN.
SO LET US SING,
A-DING, A-DONG,
AND HAVE
OUR LITTLE FLING,
A-DING, A-DONG,
BECAUSE EVERYTHING
THAT HAS BEEN
HAPPENING,
MAY NEVER COME AGAIN.

THE DAYS GO ON,
A-DING, A-DONG,
AND ONE BY ONE
THEY'RE GONE,
A-DING, A-DONG,
AND ALL TOO FAST,
A-DING, A-DONG,
THE PRESENT
IS THE PAST!
PRECIOUS HOURS
FADE LIKE FLOWERS
AND IT'S LATER
THAN IT'S EVER BEEN.
SO LET US SING,
A-DING, A-DONG,
AND HAVE
OUR LITTLE FLING,
A-DING, A-DONG,
BECAUSE EVERYTHING
THAT HAS BEEN
HAPPENING,
MAY NEVER
COME AGAIN.


I THINK OF YOU - English Lyric by Betty Reilly:

verse:
WHEN I SEARCH
FOR LOVELY WORDS
TO SING YOUR PRAISES
SINCE THERE'S SO MUCH
IN MY HEART
I WANT TO SAY,
THO' I TRY
TO FIND
EXTRAORDINARY PHRASES,
SOMEHOW I CAN ONLY SAY
IT IN THIS WAY...

Chorus:
I THINK OF YOU,
OF YOU, OF YOU.
NOBODY ELSE,
JUST YOU,
AND YOU, AND YOU.
I DREAM OF YOU,
OH, WHAT TO DO?
I ONLY
THINK OF YOU.
I WALK
DOWN THE STREET,
I THINK OF YOU.
PEOPLE I MEET
REMIND ME
OF YOU.
WHEN I GO TO SLEEP,
I THINK OF YOU,
WHATEVER SHALL I DO?
OH,
IT'S TRUE LOVE,
IT'S JUST YOU,
LOVE.
THIS REFRAIN
KEEPS POUNDING
IN MY BRAIN!
I THINK OF YOU,
OF YOU, OF YOU.
NOBODY ELSE
BUT YOU,
JUST YOU,
AND YOU.
I DREAM OF YOU,
OH,
WHAT TO DO?
I ONLY
THINK OF YOU.
Alt. Title Dreaming Of Puerto Rico

Writers Felix Manuel Rodriguez (aka Bobby Capo)

Genres Standard, Latin, Ballad

Recorded 1969

Lyrics SI POR CASUALIDAD,
DUERMES Y SUEAS.
QUE TE ACARICIA
LA BRISA.
Y SIENTES QUE EL ROCO
MANANERO BESA
TIERNAMENTE,
TU MEJILLA
Y EL AROMA DEL CAFE
TE HACE COSQUILLAS
SEGURO SUEA,
QUE ESTS EN PUERTO RICO.

SI POR CASUALIDAD,
DUERMES Y SUEAS.
QUE TE ENAMORAN
LAS OLAS,
Y QUE HAY
UN CIELO AZUL.
EN CONJURA
CON LA LUNA,
PARA HACERTE
PRISIONERO.
NO LO DIGAS
PORQUE ES
LA TIERRA
QUE QUIERO,
SEGURO SUEAS
QUE ESTS
EN PUERTO RICO.

YO NO PUEDO OCULTAR,
EL ORGULLO QUE SIENTO,
DE SER PUERTORRIQUEO.
Y QUE MI PENSAMIENTO,
NO IMPORTA DONDE VOY,
SE FUGA HACIA LA ISLITA.
NO IMPORTA DONDE VOY
A LA TIERRA BENDITA,
MI PENSAMIENTO
VUELA,

SI POR CASUALIDAD,
DUERMES Y NOTAS,
QUE UNA LAGRIMA
TE BROTA.
SEGURAMENTE
ES QUE YO
SUEO QUE CAMINO,
POR LAS CALLES
DE MI PUEBLO.
Y EN EL VENTORILLO AQUEL,
DE MIL RECUERDOS.
REVIVI EL AYER
QUIZ LLORANDO,
LLORANDO.....
LLORANDO.....
Alt. Title The Three Of Us

Writers Miriam Lewis, Felix Manuel Rodriguez (aka Bobby Capo)

Genres Standard, Latin, Pop

Recorded 1962

Lyrics ESTOY EN MEDIO,
DE ON TRIANGULO;
SIN SOLUCION NI SIQUIERA,
JUSTIFICACION.
ME ENAMORE CUANDO LA VI
POR PRIMERA VEZ,
SABIENDOLA,
UN IMPOSIBLE.
TAMBIEN EN MEDIO
DE UN TRIANGULO;
ELLA QUEDO PORQUE
IGUAL QUE
YO SE ESTREMECIO,
COMPROMETIO SU CORAZON,
Y NUNCA PENSO;
QUE PERTENECIENDO
A OTRO,
PONER SUS OJOS EN MI,
ESO HARIA DE NOSOTROS,
CULPABLES DE CONVERTIR!
NUESTRO QUERER
EN UN TRIANGULO,
TRIANGULO,
TRIANGULO,
NUESTRO QUERER,
TRIANGULO,
TRIANGULO,
TRIANGULO,
NUESTRO QUERER,
TRIANGULO,
TRIANGULO,
NUESTRO QUERER.

(English lyric by Miriam Lewis):
WE PLAY
IN THE SUN,
THE THREE OF US;
HOW WE'D LAUGH
AND WE'D RUN,
THE THREE OF US.
I AND THE BOY
AND THE GIRL
MOST DEAR TO ME,
THE THREE OF US,
ALWAYS TOGETHER.
AND WHEN
WE GROW TALL,
THE THREE OF US;
ONE DAY
LOVE CAME TO CALL
ON THE THREE OF US!
AND SUDDENLY,
WHERE THERE WERE THREE,
NOW THERE WERE TWO;
LOST IN A DREAM
THAT WAS NEW,
EVEN A STRANGER
COULD SEE,
AND AS MY HEART
BROKE IN TWO,
I KNEW
THE STRANGER WAS ME!
OH,
THERE WERE THREE OF US,
THE THREE OF US,
THE THREE OF US,
NOW THERE'S JUST ME,
POOR LONELY ME,
THE STRANGER IS ME.
