Lyrics verse:
WAY DOWN IN THE CONGOLAND
LIVED A HAPPY CHIMPANZEE
SHE LOVED A MONKEY
WITH A LONG TAIL
LORDY,
HOW SHE LOVED HIM.
EACH NIGHT
HE WOULD FIND HER THERE
SWINGING
IN THE COCONUT TREE
AND THE MONKEY GAY,
AT THE BREAK OF DAY
LIKED TO HEAR
HIS CHIMPIE SAY,

Chorus:
ABA, DABA,
DABA, DABA,
DABA, DABA,
DAB,
SAID THE CHIMPIE
TO THE MONK,
BABA, DABA,
DABA, DABA,
DABA, DABA, DAB,
SAID THE MONKEY
TO THE CHIMP.
ALL NIGHT LONG
THEY'D CHATTER
AWAY,
ALL DAY LONG
THEY'RE HAPPY
AND GAY,
SWINGING AND SINGING
IN THEIR HUNKY,
TONKY WAY.
ABA DABA,
DABA, DABA,
DABA, DABA, DAB,
MEANS MONK,
I LOVE BUT YOU,
BABA, DABA, DAB,
IN MONKEY TALK
MEANS CHIMP,
I LOVE YOU TOO,
THEN THE BIG BABOON,
ONE NIGHT IN JUNE,
HE MARRIED THEM,
AND VERY SOON
THEY WENT UPON
THEIR ABA DABA HONEYMOON.

Lyrics AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE
WE AIN'T TOGETHER,
WHY SHINE THAT LEATHER
AND PUT THEM ON.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

THESE OLD LACES
THAT TOOK ME PLACES
JUST WON'T TIE
MUSIC BANGS OUT
BUT THIS TONGUE
HANGS OUT,
AND SEEMS TO CRY.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

UNTIL YOU COME BACK, HON,
THEY'RE GOING TO STAY
UNDERNEATH MY BED
THEY WANT TO DANCE,
BUT DON'T GET THE CHANCE,
BECAUSE LIKE I SAID:
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
THERE AIN'T NOTHIN'
I CAN DO,
NOR NOTHIN'
I CAN SAY,
THAT FOLKS
DON'T CRITICIZE ME;
BUT I'M GONNA DO
JUST AS I WANT TO
ANYWAY,
I DON'T CARE
IF THEY ALL DESPISE ME.

[Chorus 1]:
IF I SHOULD TAKE
A NOTION
TO JUMP INTO
THE OCEAN,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I GO TO CHURCH
ON SUNDAY,
THEN CABARET
ALL DAY
THRU MONDAY,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF MY FRIEND
GOT NO MONEY
AND I SAY,
TAKE ALL MINE,
HONEY,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I GIVE HER
MY LAST NICKEL
AND IT LEAVES ME
IN A PICKLE,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.

[verse 2]:
AFTER ALL,
THE WAY TO DO
IS DO
JUST AS YOU PLEASE
REGARDLESS
OF THEIR TALKIN';
OFTENTIMES
THE ONES THAT TALK
WILL GET DOWN
ON THEIR KNEES
AND BEG YOUR PARDON
FOR THEIR SQUAWKIN'.

[Chorus 2]:
IF I DISLIKE
MY LOVER
AND LEAVE HER
FOR ANOTHER,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
RATHER THAN
PERSECUTE ME,
I CHOOSE
THAT YOU
WOULD SHOOT ME,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I SHOULD
GET THE FEELIN'
TO DANCE
UPON THE CEILIN',
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.
IF I LET
MY BEST COMPANION
DRIVE ME
RIGHT
INTO THE CANYON,
'T AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZ-NESS IF I DO.

Lyrics WELL, I WENT TO A TURKEY ROAST
DOWN THE STREET,
THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE
EATING LIKE WILD GEESE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

TALK ABOUT YOUR PEOPLE
HAVIN' WHALE OF A TIME,
EATIN' UP THE CHICKEN
AND DRINKIN' THEIR WINE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

NOW SOME FOLKS SAY
THAT A TRAMP WON'T STEAL,
BUT I CAUGHT THREE
IN MY CORNFIELD,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

ONE HAD A BUSHEL,
THE OTHER HAD A PECK,
ONE HAD A ROASTED EAR
TIED AROUND HIS NECK,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

THERE COMES SAL
WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SHOES
TIED ON HER FEET,
GOOD MORNING, HONEY,
STAND OVER THERE, BABY,
GET OVER THERE NOW.

HELLO, SAL,
NOW, I KNOW YOU,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SLIPPER
AN' A TORE UP SHOE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

WHEN I GET READY
TO LEAVE THIS EARTH,
I'M GONNA LOOK BACK
ON MY MONEY'S WORTH,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

Lyrics I ONCE HAD A GOWN,
IT WAS ALMOST NEW,
OH, THE DAINTIEST THING,
IT WAS SWEET ALICE BLUE.
WITH LITTLE FORGET-ME-NOTS PLACED HERE AND THERE,
WHEN I HAD IT ON,
I WALKED ON THE AIR.
AND IT WORE,
AND IT WORE,
AND IT WORE
'TIL IT WENT,
AND IT WASN'T NO MORE.

IN MY SWEET
LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN
WHEN I FIRST WANDERED
DOWN INTO TOWN.
I WAS BOTH PROUD AND SHY,
AS I FELT EVERY EYE
AND IN EVERY SHOP WINDOW
I PRIMPED PASSING BY.
THEN IN MANNER OF FASHION,
I'D FROWN
AND THE WORLD SEEMED TO SMILE ALL AROUND.
'TIL IT WILTED, I WORE IT,
I'LL ALWAYS ADORE IT,
MY SWEET LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN.

THE LITTLE SILK WORMS
THAT MADE SILK FOR THAT GOWN
JUST MADE THAT MUCH SILK
AND THEN CRAWLED IN THE GROUND.
FOR THERE NEVER WAS ANYTHING LIKE IT BEFORE
AND I DON'T DARE TO HOPE THERE WILL BE ANY MORE.
BUT IT'S GONE,
'CAUSE IT JUST HAD TO BE,
STILL IT WEARS IN MY MEMORY.

IN MY SWEET LITTLE
ALICE BLUE GOWN
WHEN I FIRST WANDERED DOWN INTO TOWN.
I WAS BOTH PROUD AND SO SHY,
AS I FELT EVERY EYE
AND IN EVERY SHOP WINDOW
I PRIMPED PASSING BY.
THEN IN MANNER OF FASHION,
I'D FROWN
AND THE WORLD SEEMED TO SMILE ALL AROUND.
SO IT WOULDN'T BE PROPER
IF MADE OF SILK WERE ANOTHER
MY SWEET LITTLE ALICE BLUE GOWN.

Lyrics (ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE - Italian lyrics):

IL VENTO
CHE SOFFIA PIANO
QUESTA NOTTE CAMBIA
IL MIO DESTINO,
E SENTO CHE
IL CUORE
ANCORA
SI SORPRENDER.

LA VITA ORA HA PI SENSO,
SE GUARDO
QUESTO CIELO IMMENSO,
E LA LUNA INAMORATA
SI ILLUMINER DI ME,
E SAR...

ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE,
COME IL MARE,
M'INVADE IL CUORE E L'ANIMA
E MI SALVER.
E SAR NATURALE
COME RESPIRARE,
L'ARIA IN ME,
MI PARLER DI TE.

ADESSO TUTTO DIVERSO,
RESPIRO TE NELL'UNIVERSO,
I TUOI OCCHI
SON DUE
STELLE NELL'OSCURIT.

ALL'IMPROVVISO AMORE,
COME IL MARE,
M'INVADE IL CUORE E L'ANIMA
E MI SALVER.
E SAR NATURALE
COME RESPIRARE,
E SAR VERO AMORE
CHE GUARISCE IL CUORE
LUCE DENTRO ME NASCER.


(SUDDENLY LOVE - English lyrics):

THE WIND
THAT SOFTLY BLOWS TONIGHT
IS CHANGING
MY DESTINY,
AND I FEEL
THAT MY HEART
WILL BE SURPRISED
ONCE AGAIN.

LIFE HAS MORE SENSE,
NOW IF I WATCH
THIS IMMENSE SKY,
AND THE LOVING MOON
WILL BRIGHTEN UP WITH ME,
AND WILL BE...

SUDDENLY LOVE,
LIKE THE SEA,
FLOODING MY HEART
AND MY SOUL
AND WILL SAVE ME.
IT WILL BE NATURAL
LIKE BREATHING,
AND THE AIR
WILL TALK ME OF YOU.

NOW EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT,
I BREATHE OF YOU
IN THE UNIVERSE,
YOUR EYES
ARE TWO STARS
IN THE DARKNESS.

SUDDENLY LOVE,
LIKE THE SEA
FLOODING MY HEART
AND MY SOUL
AND WILL SAVE ME.
IT WILL BE NATURAL
LIKE BREATHING,
AND WILL BE TRUE LOVE
HEALING MY HEART
WILL RISE THE LIGHT
INSIDE OF ME!

Lyrics verse 1:
YOUR EYES ONCE TOLD ME A STORY
I BUILT MY CASTLES ON AIR.
LIFE WAS SOON DIMMED
OF ITS GLORY,
I LOVED
BUT YOU CEASED TO CARE.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

verse 2:
YOU BROKE THE NEWS TO ME
KINDLY,
I CAN'T SAY
YOU WERE NOT FAIR.
YET, JUST BECAUSE I LOVED
BLINDLY,
I HAVE THE BURDEN TO BEAR.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

Lyrics THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME PRAYING.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME SAYING,
PLEASE SEND ME
SOMEONE TO LOVE,
SEND THE ONE
I'M THINKING OF,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME CRYING.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
THERE'S NO DENYING.
THEY SENT ONE
WITH LOVELY CHARMS,
ONE WHO REALLY
THRILLS MY ARMS,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.

I SEARCHED EV'RYWHERE
JUST TO FIND SOMEONE
WHO CARES.
THEY CAME DOWN
TO INTERRUPT
JUST AS I
HAD GIVEN UP.

THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
AND BROUGHT YOU NEAR ME.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
I LOVE THEM DEARLY.
THEY GAVE ME
THE WIDE WORLD
WRAPPED UP
IN ONE LITTLE GIRL,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.

Lyrics ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT,
DO YOU MISS ME TONIGHT,
ARE YOU SORRY
WE DRIFTED APART?
DOES YOUR MEMORY STRAY
TO A BRIGHT SUMMER DAY,
WHEN I KISSED YOU
AND CALLED YOU SWEETHEART?
DO THE CHAIRS
IN YOUR PARLOR
SEEM EMPTY AND BARE?
DO YOU GAZE
AT YOUR DOORSTEP
AND PICTURE ME THERE?
IS YOUR HEART
FILLED WITH PAIN?
SHALL I COME BACK
AGAIN?
TELL ME, DEAR,
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?

Lyrics verse 1:
ALONE IN THE WORLD
WAS POOR LITTLE ANN,
AS SWEET A YOUNG CHILD
AS YOU'D FIND.
HER PARENTS HAD GONE
TO THEIR FINAL REWARD
LEAVING
THEIR DARLING BEHIND.
THIS POOR LITTLE CHILD
WAS BUT NINE YEARS
OF AGE
WHEN MOTHER
AND DAD WENT AWAY,
BUT BRAVELY
SHE WORKED
AT THE ONE THING
SHE KNEW
TO EARN
HER FEW PENNIES
EACH DAY.

Chorus:
SHE MADE
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FLOWERS
FOR LADIES OF FASHION
TO WEAR.
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FASHIONED
FROM ANNIE'S DESPAIR.

verse 2:
WITH PAPER
AND SHEARS,
WITH WIRE
AND WAX,
SHE FASHIONED
EACH TULIP
AND MUM.
AS SNOW
DRIFTED IN
TO HER TENEMENT
ROOM,
HER DEAR LITTLE FINGERS
GREW NUMB.
WITH PAPER
AND SHEARS,
WITH WIRE
AND WAX,
SHE LABORED
AND NEVER COMPLAINED,
'TIL CUTTING
AND FOLDING
HER HEALTH
SLIPPED AWAY
AND WIRING
AND WAXING
SHE WANED.

Chorus:
MAKING
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FLOWERS
FOR LADIES OF FASHION
TO WEAR.
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FASHIONED
FROM ANNIE'S DESPAIR.

verse 3:
THEY FOUND
POOR LITTLE ANN,
ALL COVERED
WITH ICE
STILL CLUTCHING
HER POOR FROZEN SHEARS,
AMIDST ALL THE BLOSSOMS
SHE FASHIONED BY HAND
AND WATERED
WITH ALL
HER YOUNG TEARS.
THERE MUST BE
A HEAVEN
WHERE ANNIE
CAN PLAY
IN HEAVENLY GARDENS
AND BOWERS.
INSTEAD OF A HALO
SHE'LL WEAR
'ROUND HER HEAD,
A GARLAND
OF GENUINE FLOWERS.

Chorus:
NO MORE
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FLOWERS
FOR LADIES OF FASHION
TO WEAR.
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS,
FASHIONED
FROM ANNIE'S DESPAIR.
