Lyrics YOU HAD TO LEAVE ME
ALL BY MYSELF DEAR,
AND I'VE BEEN CRYING
THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH,
BUT I'VE BEEN TELLING EVERYBODY
I'M WAITING JUST FOR YOU.
YOUR FRIENDS ARE TRYING
SO HARD TO TEMPT ME,
THERE'S NO USE TRYING
BECAUSE I'LL BE TRUE.
AND DARLING,
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
NOBODY ELSE WILL DO.

I KNOW THIS WAITING
CAN DRIVE ME CRAZY,
DON'T MIND THIS WAITING,
IT'S NOTHING NEW,
FOR I'LL BE TELLING EVERYBODY
I'M WAITING JUST FOR YOU.
MAY BE A LONG TIME
BEFORE I SEE YOU,
SO WE CAN DO WHAT
WE USED TO DO.
BUT I'LL BE TELLING EVERYBODY
I'M JUST WAITING FOR YOU.

Lyrics verse 1:
DIDN'T WE HAVE
A LOVELY EVENING?
OUR PARTY
WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
OH, DIDN'T MISSUS SMITH
LOOK STUNNING?
DID YOU NOTICE
MISSUS JONES' NEW DRESS?
WHAT DID MISTER BROWN SAY
TO UNCLE BENNY?
JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS,
HE HAD A FEW TOO MANY.
SURE WAS A HUNGRY CROWD,
THEY DIDN'T LEAVE A SCRAP
FOR ROVER.
WE OUGHT TO FEEL
REAL PROUD,
AND MIGHTY GLAD
THE DARN THING'S OVER.

Chorus:
NO MORE COMPANY
TO FEED,
NO MORE PAPERS
LEFT TO READ,
WHAT'S TO DO
ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.
NO MORE ANYTHING
TO DRINK.
LEAVE THOSE DISHES
IN THE SINK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
SIMPLY NIGHTY-NIGHT
AND SO TO SLEEP.

YOU'RE WAITING NOW
FOR ME TO SAY,
I LOVE YOU MORE
AND MORE
AND MORE, DEAR,
YOU'RE LOOKING YOUNGER
EV'RY DAY,
YOU NEVER WERE
SO SWEET BEFORE,
DEAR.

NO MORE
MONEY IN THE BANK,
NO CUTE BABY
WE CAN SPANK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.

verse 2:
DIDN'T THEY MAKE AN AWFUL MESS,
THOUGH?
THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF DAMAGE
DONE.
OH, CAN'T WE LAUGH IT OFF?
I GUESS SO.
THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL
EXPENSIVE FUN.
ALL THOSE NAUGHTY
LITTLE RINGS
MADE BY NAUGHTY GLASSES,
THOSE CIGARETTE BURNS,
REMAINS OF DEMITASSES.
NOW, HONEY,
PLEASE DON'T WEEP,
IT'S SIMPLY
THAT YOU'RE WEAK
FROM LAUGHTER.
WE BETTER
GET SOME SLEEP,
SO WE CAN FACE THE MORNING
AFTER.

Chorus:
NO MORE
COMPANY TO FEED,
NO MORE
PAPERS LEFT TO READ,
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.
NO MORE
ANYTHING TO DRINK.
LEAVE THOSE DISHES
IN THE SINK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
SIMPLY NIGHTY-NIGHT
AND SO TO SLEEP.

YOU'RE WAITING NOW
FOR ME TO SAY,
I LOVE YOU
MORE AND MORE
AND MORE, DEAR,
YOU'RE LOOKING YOUNGER
EV'RY DAY,
YOU NEVER WERE
SO SWEET BEFORE,
DEAR.

NO MORE
MONEY IN THE BANK,
NO CUTE BABY
WE CAN SPANK.
WHAT'S TO DO ABOUT IT?
LET'S PUT OUT THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP.

Lyrics THE EVENING BREEZE
CARESSED THE TREES
TENDERLY.
THE TREMBLING TREES
EMBRACED THE BREEZE
TENDERLY.
THEN YOU AND I
CAME WANDERING BY
AND LOST IN A SIGH
WERE WE.
THE SHORE WAS KISSED
BY SEA AND MIST
TENDERLY.
I CAN'T FORGET
HOW TWO HEARTS MET
BREATHLESSLY.
YOUR ARMS OPENED WIDE
AND CLOSED ME INSIDE
YOU TOOK MY LIPS,
YOU TOOK MY LOVE,
SO TENDERLY.
