Lyrics BILL COLLECTORS
GATHER 'ROUND
AND RATHER
HAUNT THE COTTAGE
NEXT DOOR -
MEN THE GROCER
AND BUTCHER SENT,
MEN WHO CALL
FOR THE RENT.
BUT WITHIN,
A HAPPY CHAPPY
AND HIS BRIDE
OF ONLY A YEAR
SEEM TO BE
SO CHEERFUL.
HERE'S AN EARFUL
OF THE CHATTER
YOU HEAR:

EV'RY MORNING,
EV'RY EVENING,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
NOT MUCH MONEY,
OH, BUT HONEY,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
THE RENT'S UNPAID,
DEAR,
WE HAVEN'T A BUS,
BUT SMILES WERE MADE,
DEAR,
FOR PEOPLE LIKE US.
IN THE WINTER,
IN THE SUMMER,
DON'T WE HAVE FUN?
TIMES ARE BUM
AND GETTING BUMMER,
STILL WE HAVE FUN.
THERE'S NOTHING SURER,
THE RICH GET RICH
AND THE POOR
GET CHILDREN.
IN THE MEANTIME,
IN BETWEEN TIME,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?

JUST TO MAKE
THEIR TROUBLE
NEARLY DOUBLE,
SOMETHING HAPPENED
LAST NIGHT.
TO THEIR CHIMNEY
A GRAY BIRD CAME,
MISTER STORK
IS HIS NAME,
AND I'LL BET
TWO PINS
A PAIR OF TWINS
JUST HAPPENED IN
WITH THE BIRD.
STILL,
THEY'RE VERY
GAY AND MERRY,
JUST AT DAWNING
I HEARD:

EV'RY MORNING,
EV'RY EVENING,
DON'T WE HAVE FUN?
TWINS AND CARES,
DEAR,
COME IN PAIRS,
DEAR,
DON'T WE HAVE FUN?
WE'VE ONLY STARTED
AS MOMMER AND POP,
ARE WE DOWNHEARTED?
I'LL SAY WE'RE NOT!
LANDLORD'S MAD
AND GETTING MADDER,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
TIMES ARE BAD
AND GETTING BADDER,
STILL WE HAVE FUN.
THERE'S NOTHING
SURER,
THE RICH GET RICH
AND THE POOR
GET LAID OFF.
IN THE MEANTIME,
IN BETWEEN TIME,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN!

WHEN THE MAN
WHO SOLD 'EM
CARPETS TOLD 'EM
HE WOULD
TAKE THEM AWAY,
THEY SAID,
WONDERFUL,
HERE'S OUR CHANCE,
TAKE THEM UP
AND WE'LL DANCE.
AND WHEN BURGLARS
CAME
AND ROBBED THEM,
TAKING ALL THEIR
SILVER
THEY SAY,
HUBBY YELLED,
WE'RE FAMOUS
FOR THEY'LL
NAME US
IN THE PAPERS
TODAY.

NIGHT OR DAYTIME,
IT'S ALL PLAYTIME,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
HOT OR COLD DAYS,
ANY OLD DAYS,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
IF WIFIE WISHES
TO GO TO A PLAY,
DON'T WASH
HE DISHES,
JUST THROW THEM
AWAY.
STREETCAR SEATS
ARE AWFUL NARROW,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?
THEY WON'T
SMASH UP
OUR PIERCE ARROW,
WE AIN'T GOT NONE.
THEY'VE CUT
MY WAGES,
BUT MY INCOME TAX
WILL BE SO MUCH
SMALLER,
WHEN I'M PAID OFF.
I'LL BE LAID OFF,
AIN'T WE GOT FUN?

Lyrics CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S THE DOORWAY,
I'LL GO MY WAY,
YOU GO YOUR WAY,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON
WE'RE THROUGH.
HERE IS WHERE
WE HAVE A SHOWDOWN,
I'M TOO HIGH-HAT,
YOU'RE TOO LOW-DOWN,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S GOODBYE
TO YOU!
THEY SAY THAT
WHEN A HIGH-BROW
MEETS A LOW-BROW
WALKIN' ALONG BROADWAY.
SOON THE HIGH-BROW,
HE HAS NO BROW,
AIN'T IT A SHAME?
AND YOU'RE TO BLAME.
WHAT'S THE USE
OF PROHIBITION?
YOU PRODUCE
THE SAME CONDITION.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON,
WE'RE THROUGH.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
I'VE GONE CRAZY
TOO.

Lyrics I'M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES,
PRETTY BUBBLES IN THE AIR.
THEY FLY SO HIGH,
NEARLY REACH THE SKY,
THEN LIKE MY DREAMS
THEY FADE AND DIE.
FORTUNE'S ALWAYS HIDING,
I'VE LOOKED EVERYWHERE.
I'M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES,
PRETTY BUBBLES IN THE AIR.

Lyrics verse 1:
I'M SO BLUE,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT TO DO.
ALL DAY THROUGH,
I'M PINING
JUST FOR YOU.
I DID WRONG
WHEN I LET YOU
GET AWAY,
FOR NOW I GRIEVE
ABOUT YOU
NIGHT AND DAY.
I'M UNHAPPY
AND DISSATISFIED,
BUT I'D BE HAPPY
IF I HAD YOU
BY MY SIDE.

Chorus:
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU,
I'D LOVE YOU STRONG,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU,
I'D LOVE YOU LONG.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I WOULDN'T GO,
UNTIL I TOLD YOU,
HONEY,
I LOVE YOU SO.
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU
ONE HOUR TONIGHT,
IF I WAS FREE
TO DO
THE THINGS I MIGHT.
I'M TELLING YOU TRUE,
I'D BE ANYTHING
BUT BLUE,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU.

verse 2:
ALL DRESSED UP
BUT STILL
NOWHERE TO GO,
HOW I WISH
I COULD SEE A SHOW.
BUT HERE I WAIT
WITH NO ONE
TO CALL ME DEAR,
THE ONE I LOVE
IS MANY MILES
FROM HERE.
CENTRAL,
GIVE ME
ONE-TWO-THREE-FOUR,
OH,
WON'T YOU LISTEN,
LITTLE SWEETIE,
WHILE I SAY:

Chorus:
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU,
I'D LOVE YOU STRONG,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU,
I'D LOVE YOU LONG.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I WOULDN'T GO,
UNTIL I TOLD YOU,
HONEY,
I LOVE YOU SO.
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU
ONE HOUR TONIGHT,
IF I WAS FREE
TO DO
THE THINGS I MIGHT.
I'M TELLING YOU TRUE,
I'D BE ANYTHING
BUT BLUE,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU,
FOR JUST AN HOUR,
IF I COULD BE WITH YOU.

Lyrics JUST IMAGINE
THAT HE LOVES ME DEARLY,
JUST IMAGINE
THAT I'M HERE SINCERELY.
I'M PRETENDING
THAT HE'S SENDING
A LOVE NOTE ENDING
I LOVE YOU!
SEEMS THAT HE'S THERE
AS THE DAY IS CLOSING
ON HIS KNEES THERE,
I HEAR HIM PROPOSING!
HE'S NOT PRESENT,
STILL IT'S PLEASANT,
JUST IMAGINE
THAT IT'S TRUE.

SEEMS THAT HE'S THERE
AS THE DAY IS CLOSING
ON HIS KNEES THERE,
I HEAR HIM PROPOSING!
TILL I WIN YOU,
I'LL CONTINUE
TO IMAGINE
THAT IT'S TRUE.

Lyrics VOICES HUM,
CROONING OVER MOONLIGHT BAY.
BANJOS STRUM,
TUNING WHILE THE MOONBEAMS PLAY.
ALL ALONE,
UNKNOWN THEY FIND ME,
MEMORIES LIKE THESE REMIND ME
OF THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND ME
DOWN ON MOONLIGHT BAY.

WE WERE SAILING ALONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY,
WE COULD HEAR
THE VOICES RINGING,
THEY SEEMED TO SAY,:
YOU HAVE STOLEN HER HEART
NOW DON'T GO 'WAY!
AS WE SANG
LOVE'S OLD SWEET SONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY.

CANDLE LIGHTS GLEAMING
ON THE SILENT SHORE,
LONELY NIGHTS, DREAMING
TILL WE MEET ONCE MORE.
FAR APART,
HER HEART IS YEARNING,
WITH A SIGH,
FOR MY RETURNING.
WITH THE LIGHT OF LOVE
STILL BURNING
AS IN OF DAYS OF YORE.

WE WERE SAILING ALONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY,
WE COULD HEAR
THE VOICES RINGING,
THEY SEEMED TO SAY,:
YOU HAVE STOLEN HER HEART
NOW DON'T GO 'WAY!
AS WE SANG
LOVE'S OLD SWEET SONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY.

Lyrics LAST NIGHT
I STARTED OUT HAPPY,
LAST NIGHT
MY HEART WAS SO GAY,
LAST NIGHT
I FOUND MYSELF DANCING
IN MY FAVORITE CABARET.
YOU WERE COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN,
JUST AN AFFAIR
OF THE PAST.
THEN SUDDENLY
SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME,
AND I FOUND MY HEART BEATING,
OH SO FAST.

I SAW YOU LAST NIGHT
AND GOT THAT OLD FEELING.
WHEN YOU CAME IN SIGHT
I GOT THAT OLD FEELING.
THE MOMENT
THAT YOU DANCED BY
I FELT A THRILL,
AND WHEN
YOU CAUGHT MY EYE
MY HEART STOOD STILL.
ONCE AGAIN
I SEEMED TO FEEL
THAT OLD YEARNING.
AND I KNEW
THE SPARK OF LOVE
WAS STILL BURNING.
THERE'LL BE
NO NEW ROMANCE
FOR ME,
IT'S FOOLISH TO START,
FOR THAT OLD FEELING
IS STILL IN MY HEART.

Lyrics THERE'S A SONG
IN THE LAND OF THE LILY
EACH SWEETHEART
HAS HEARD WITH A SIGH.
OVER HIGH GARDEN WALLS
THIS SWEET ECHO FALLS
AS A SOLDIER BOY
WHISPERS GOODBYE.

SMILE THE WHILE
YOU KISS ME SAD ADIEU,
WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL BY
I'LL COME TO YOU.
THEN THE SKIES
WILL SEEM MORE BLUE,
DOWN IN LOVER'S LANE,
MY DEARIE.

WEDDING BELLS
WILL RING SO MERRILY,
EV'RY TEAR
WILL BE A MEMORY.
SO WAIT AND PRAY
EACH NIGHT FOR ME
TILL WE MEET AGAIN

THOUGH GOODBYE
MEANS THE BIRTH OF A TEARDROP,
HELLO
MEANS THE BIRTH OF A SMILE.
AND THE SMILE WILL ERASE
THE TEAR BLIGHTING TRACE
WHEN WE MEET
IN THE AFTER AWHILE.

Lyrics SWEETHEART,
YOU MUST KNOW
THAT I LOVE YOU SO
AWAKE OR SLEEPING,
MY HEART IS IN YOUR KEEPING
AND CALLING TO YOU
SOFT AND LOW.

MY WONDERFUL ONE,
WHENEVER I'M DREAMING
LOVE'S LOVELIGHT
A-GLEAMING I SEE.
MY WONDERFUL ONE,
HOW MY ARMS ACHE
TO HOLD, DEAR,
TO CUDDLE AND FOLD YOU
TO ME.

JUST YOU,
ONLY YOU
IN THE SHADOWY TWILIGHT,
IN SILVERY MOONLIGHT
THERE'S NONE LIKE YOU.
I ADORE YOU,
MY LIFE I'LL LIVE FOR YOU,
OH, MY WONDERFUL,
WONDERFUL ONE.

Lyrics verse:
AS I LOOK AT YOU
A THOUGHT
GOES THROUGH MY MIND
WHAT A MARVELOUS FIND
YOU'D MAKE UP ON THE SCREEN.
I AM PROUD
THAT I HAVE YOU
RIGHT BY MY SIDE,
BUT I'D BE SATISFIED
TO LEND YOU
TO THE PUBLIC
TO BE SEEN!

Chorus:
YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES,
YOU'RE WONDERFUL TO SEE,
YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES,
OH, WHAT A HIT YOU WOULD BE!
YOUR FACE WOULD THRILL A NATION,
YOUR FACE WOULD BE ADORED,
YOU'D MAKE A GREAT SENSATION,
WITH WEALTH AND FAME YOUR REWARD

AND IF YOU SHOULD KISS
THE WAY YOU KISS
WHEN WE ARE ALL ALONE,
YOU'D MAKE EV'RY GIRL
AND MAN A FAN
WORSHIPING AT YOUR THRONE.

YOU OUGHTA SHINE
AS BRIGHTLY
AS JUPITER AND MARS
YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES,
MY STAR OF STARS!
