Lyrics THRU THE TREES
COMES AUTUMN
WITH HER SERENADE,.
MELODIES,
THE SWEETEST MUSIC
EVER PLAYED.
AUTUMN KISSES WE KNEW
ARE BEAUTIFUL SOUVENIRS,
AS I PAUSE TO RECALL
THE LEAVES SEEM TO FALL
LIKE TEARS.
SILVER STARS
WERE CLINGING TO AN AUTUMN SKY,
LOVE WAS OURS
UNTIL OCTOBER WANDERED BY.
LET THE YEARS COME AND GO,
I'LL STILL FEEL THE GLOW
THAT TIME CAN NOT FADE,
WHEN I HEAR
THAT LOVELY AUTUMN SERENADE.

Lyrics verse:
LOVE IS A STRANGE
AND POWERFUL THING,
IT CAN BRING YOU DOWN
OR MAKE YOU SING.
LOVE MAY GIVE YOU
A MILLIONAIRE'S SCHEME,
BUT IT ONLY GAVE ME
ONE DREAM.

Chorus:
DARN THAT DREAM
I DREAM EACH NIGHT,
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
AND YOU HOLD ME TIGHT,
BUT WHEN I AWAKE
YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT,
OH, DARN THAT DREAM.
DARN YOUR LIPS
AND DARN YOUR EYES,
THEY LIFT ME HIGH
ABOVE THE MOONLIT SKIES,
THEN I TUMBLE OUT
OF PARADISE,
OH,
DARN THAT DREAM.

DARN
THAT ONE-TRACK MIND
OF MINE,
IT CAN'T UNDERSTAND
THAT YOU DON'T CARE.
JUST TO CHANGE
THE MOOD I'M IN,
I'D WELCOME
A NICE OLD
NIGHTMARE.

DARN THAT DREAM
AND BLESS IT TOO,
WITHOUT THAT DREAM
I NEVER WOULD HAVE YOU.
BUT IT HAUNTS ME
AND IT WON'T COME TRUE,
OH,
DARN THAT DREAM.

Lyrics verse 1:
WE WERE TWO SWEETHEARTS,
BUT WE SAID GOODBYE,
ONE WITH A HANDSHAKE,
AND ONE WITH A SIGH.
WE WERE TWO SWEETHEARTS
BY A SACRED VOW,
WHAT ARE WE NOW?
WHAT ARE WE NOW?

Chorus:
JUST FRIENDS,
LOVERS NO MORE.
JUST FRIENDS,
BUT NOT LIKE BEFORE.
TO THINK
OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN
AND NOT TO KISS AGAIN
SEEMS LIKE PRETENDING
IT ISN'T THE ENDING.
TWO FRIENDS
DRIFTING APART,
TWO FRIENDS,
BUT ONE BROKEN HEART.
WE LOVED,
WE LAUGHED,
WE CRIED,
AND SUDDENLY LOVE DIED.
THE STORY ENDS,
AND WE'RE JUST FRIENDS.

verse 2:
WHERE ARE THE SUNBEAMS
THAT WERE IN YOUR EYES?
SOMETIMES I WONDER
IF THEY TOO WERE LIES.
WE WHO WERE LOVERS
ARE NOW ONLY FRIENDS,
THAT'S HOW IT ENDS,
THAT'S HOW IT ENDS.

Lyrics verse 1:
I'VE GOT A LOVESICK TALE
TO TELL TO YOU,
'THO' IT'S NO AFFAIR
OF MINE.
IT'S ABOUT A GAL
NAMED SUE
AND BOY NAMED LOU,
THEY WERE FIGHTING
ALL THE TIME.
LOU CAME HOME
ONE AFTERNOON,
FOUND AN EMPTY DINING ROOM,
WITHOUT A WORD
HIS TURTLEDOVE HAD FLOWN,
SO HE BEGAN TO MOAN.

Chorus:
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
OR BID ME GOODBYE,
AND I'M AS BLUE
AS CAN BE.
I KNOW SHE
LOVES ANOTHER ONE,
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHO,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHICH,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHAT
THAT RASCAL
HAS GOT
THAT TOOK MY SWEETIE FROM ME.
I'M LIKE
A LITTLE LOST SHEEP
AND I CAN'T SLEEP
BUT I KEEP
TRYIN' TO FORGET,
THE ONE I LOVE
HAS GONE
AND LEFT ME
ALL ALONE.
I MOAN
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
I KNOW THAT I'LL DIE,
WHY DON'T SHE
HURRY BACK HOME.

verse 2:
YOU OUGHTA SEE
THIS LOVESICK FELLOW,
NAMED LOU,
DOESN'T DO
A THING BUT SIGH.
AND WHILE
HE IS WONDERING
WHAT BECAME
OF SUE,
HE IS
A SIGHT
FOR ANY EYE.
BOUGHT SOME POISON,
BOUGHT A GUN,
SAYS GOODBYE
TO EVERYONE,
AND WHILE HE IS
DOPING OUT SOME WAY
TO DIE,
HE CAN'T FORGET
TO CRY.

Chorus:

Lyrics DON'T YOU BE
A GOOD FOR NOTHING,
NEVER AMOUNT TO NOTHING,
HANGING AROUND THE CORNERS!
CAN'T YOU SEE
YOU NEVER WILL BE
GETTING ANYWHERE.
IF YOU WANT
TO GET EMPLOYMENT,
TIDY UP YOUR FACES
AND AMOUNT TO SUMTHING,
THOSE BIG MEN
WHO GOT UP THERE
ALL DECLARE:

WHEN THERE'S
A SHINE ON YOUR SHOES,
THERE'S A MELODY
IN YOUR HEART,
WITH A SINGABLE
HAPPY FEELING,
A WONDERFUL WAY
TO START
TO FACE THE WORLD
EV'RY DAY,
WITH A
DEEDLE-UM-DEE-DI-DI
LITTLE MELODY
THAT IS MAKING
THE WORRYING WORLD
GO BY.
WHEN YOU WALK
DOWN THE STREET,
WITH A HAPPY-GO-LUCKY
BEAT,
YOU'LL FIND A LOT
IN WHAT I'M REPEATING,
WHEN THERE'S
A SHINE ON YOUR SHOES,
THERE'S A MELODY
IN YOUR HEART
WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY
TO START THE DAY.

THERE'S A SHINE
THAT YOU GET
IN THE BARBER SHOP,
WHILE THE BARBER'S GOING,
ZIGGY-ZIGGY-ZING
WITH HIS STROP!
THERE'S THE SHINE
THAT YOU GET
IN THE PULLMAN CAR,
WHILE THE TRAIN IS GOING,
CHUGGY-CHUGGY-CHUGGY-
CHUGGY-CHUG
GOING FAR AWAY!
THERE'S A SHINE
THAT YOU GET
N THE FERRY BOAT,
WHILE THE WATER'S GOING,
WISHY-WASHY-WISHY-WASHY-
WISHY-WASHY-WOO!
BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER
WHERE YOU GET IT,
IT'LL DO A LOT OF GOOD
IF YOU LET IT
A LITTLE POLISH
WILL ABOLISH
WHAT'S BOTHERING YOU.

WHEN THERE'S
A SHINE ON YOUR SHOES,
THERE'S A MELODY
IN YOUR HEART,
WITH A SINGABLE
HAPPY FEELING,
A WONDERFUL WAY
TO START
TO FACE THE WORLD
EV'RY DAY,
WITH A
DEEDLE-UM-DEE-DI-DI
LITTLE MELODY
THAT IS MAKING
THE WORRYING WORLD
GO BY.
WHEN YOU WALK
DOWN THE STREET,
WITH A HAPPY-GO-LUCKY
BEAT,
YOU'LL FIND A LOT
IN WHAT I'M REPEATING,
WHEN THERE'S
A SHINE ON YOUR SHOES,
THERE'S A MELODY
IN YOUR HEART
WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY
TO START THE DAY.

Lyrics verse:
THE MEN OF SCIENCE
ARE A BRILLIANT CLAN.
JUST THINK,
JUST THINK,
THEY CAN TELL
HOW FAR IT IS
FROM HERE
TO A STAR ABOVE.
AND YET
THEY CANNOT MEASURE
THE SAFEST DISTANCE
BETWEEN A WOMAN
AND A MAN
IN LOVE.
SINCE I CANNOT CONSULT
A BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE
THAT MAY BE LYING
ON THE SHELF,
I GUESS I'LL HAVE
A CONFIDENTIAL DISCUSSION
WITH MYSELF.

Chorus:
BE WISE,
BE SMART,
BEHAVE MY HEART,
DON'T UPSET
YOUR CART
WHEN SHE'SHE'S
SO CLOSE.
BE SOFT,
BE SWEET,
BUT BE DISCREET,
DON'T GO OFF
YOUR BEAT,
SHE'SHE'S
TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT.

TOO CLOSE,
TOO CLOSE
FOR COMFORT,
PLEASE NOT AGAIN.
TOO CLOSE,
TOO CLOSE
TO KNOW
JUST WHEN
TO SAY,
WHEN.

BE FIRM,
BE FAIR,
BE SURE,
BEWARE,
ON YOUR GUARD,
TAKE CARE
WHILE THERE'S
SUCH TEMPTATION.
ONE THING
LEADS TO ANOTHER,
TOO LATE
TO RUN FOR COVER,
SHE'SHE'S MUCH
TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT NOW!

TOO CLOSE,
TOO CLOSE.
SHE'SHE'S MUCH
TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT NOW.
