Lyrics LYING ALL ALONE
I'M THINKIN',
STARING AT THE STARS,
I WONDER,
SINCE I BEEN AWAY,
I'M LONELY
WHEN I'M GONNA
GO BACK HOME.
WALKING THROUGH THE WORLD,
THINGS HAPPEN,
RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES,
THINGS HAPPEN.
SOON ENOUGH YOU'RE LOST,
AND THINKIN
WHEN I'M GONNA
GO BACK HOME.

OH ME,
OH MY,
TIME GOES SLOW,
WHERE IT'S GONE TO
I DON'T KNOW.
BUT MAYBE TIMES WILL TURN,
I PRAY.

SO MAYBE SOMEDAY
I'LL GET LUCKY,
SOMEONE'S GONNA SAY,
'ALL RIGHT SON,
TAKE THE TRAIN
AND GO BACK HOME,
HOP A FREIGHT
AND GO BACK HOME.'

OH ME,
OH MY,
TIME GOES SLOW,
WHERE IT'S GONE TO
I DON'T KNOW.
BUT MAYBE TIMES WILL TURN,
I PRAY.

SO MAYBE SOMEDAY
I'LL GET LUCKY,
SOMEONE'S GONNA SAY,
'ALL RIGHT SON,
TAKE THE TRAIN
AND GO BACK HOME,
HOP A FREIGHT
AND GO BACK HOME.'

Lyrics MOUNTAINS I LIKE,
THE SEA I LIKE,
AND LEMON
IN MY MORNING
GLASS OF TEA
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!
SATIN I LIKE,
CHENILLE I LIKE,
AND STAFFORDSHIRE
THAT'S ABSOLUTELY REAL
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
A BIG BASS DRUM,
I LOVE
A SLIDE TROMBONE,
I THINK
THE TRUMPET
AND THE FLUGELHORN
ARE GRAND.
BUT IF YOU WANT
TO SEE ME HAPPY;
PUT THEM ALL TOGETHER
IN A BIG BRASS BAND.

DIAMONDS I LIKE,
AND PEARLS I LIKE,
ESPECIALLY
ON CERTAIN PRETTY GIRLS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

HONOR I LIKE,
IDEALS I LIKE,
AND KNOWING
HOW THE PRIDE
OF VIRTUE FEELS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!
CHECKERS I LIKE
AND CHESS I LIKE,
AND CLIMBING
UP THE LADDER
OF SUCCESS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
THE PICCOLO,
I LOVE
THE BASS BASSOON,
I GIVE
THE XYLOPHONE
AND GLOCKENSPIEL
THREE CHEERS.
BUT PUT THEM
ALL TOGETHER,
MAKE THEM PLAY
TOGETHER,
AND WHAT ENSUES
IS ALWAYS MUSIC
TO MY EARS.

LOANING I LIKE,
WHAT'S LENT I LIKE,
AND EVERY
NICKEL NOVEL
YOU INVENT
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
A BIG BASS DRUM,
I LOVE
A SLIDE TROMBONE,
I THINK
THE TRUMPET
AND THE FLUGELHORN
ARE GRAND;
BUT I LOVE MUSIC!
I LOVE MUSIC!
MUSIC
IS MUSIC
TO MY EARS!

Lyrics WARM,
GLIMMERING DAYS,
CLOUDS,
CLOVER AND HAZE,
LEAVES
SHINING WITH DEW;
SUMMER WITH YOU.
COOL CARPETS
OF GREEN,
SOFT WINDS
THROUGH THE SCREEN,
WINE CHILLING
FOR TWO;
SUMMER WITH YOU.

I KNOW
THAT THE SEASONS PASS,
I'VE LOOKED
INTO MY LOOKING GLASS.
THE LEAVES MAY FADE
AND THE YEARS GO BY,
BUT I'M CONTENT
WITH ONE JULY.

WHEN BIRDS
CIRCLE OUR HILL,
TIME
SEEMED TO STAND STILL;
NOW MORNINGS ARE COLD,
GRASS HAS GROWN OLD,
HARVEST IS THROUGH;
STILL I REMEMBER
SUMMER WITH YOU.
