Lyrics BRAVE INDIAN WARRIOR,
SINCE FIRST I MET YOU,
I CAN'T FORGET YOU,
CHEROKEE SWEETHEART!
CHILD OF THE PRAIRIE,
YOUR LOVE KEEPS CALLING,
MY HEART ENTHRALLING,
YOU CHEROKEE!

IN THE SUMMERTIME
OF LOVER TIME GONE BY,
FROM MY MEMORY,
SO TENDERLY INSIDE!

MY BRAVE INDIAN WARRIOR,
ONE DAY I'LL HOLD YOU,
IN MY ARMS HOLD YOU,
MY CHEROKEE!

IN THE SUMMERTIME
OF LOVER TIME GONE BY,
FROM MY MEMORY,
SO TENDERLY INSIDE!

MY BRAVE INDIAN WARRIOR,
OBNE DAY I'LL HOLD YOU,
IN MY ARMS I'LL HOLD YOU,
MY CHEROKEE!

Lyrics GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
UNTIL WE MEET TOMORROW,
GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
SLEEP WILL VANISH SORROW.
TEARS AND PARTING
MAY MAKE US FORLORN,
BUT WITH THE DAWN
A NEW DAY IS BORN.

GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
THOUGH I'M NOT BESIDE YOU,
GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
STILL MY LOVE WILL GUIDE YOU.
DREAMS WILL ENFOLD YOU,
IN EACH ONE I'LL HOLD YOU.
GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
DREAMS WILL ENFOLD YOU,
IN EACH ONE I'LL HOLD YOU,
GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART,
GOODNIGHT

Lyrics verse:
I'LL ADMIT
AN OCCASIONAL AFFAIR,
BUT SOMEHOW
THEY ALL MADE ME FEEL
THAT LOVE WASN'T THERE,
MY HEART WAS AWARE
THE WHOLE THING
WASN'T REAL.
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT WAS WRONG
UNTIL THE DAY
YOU CAME ALONG.

Chorus:
I HADN'T ANYONE TILL YOU
I WAS A LONELY ONE
TILL YOU.
I USED TO LIE AWAKE
AND WONDER
IF THERE COULD BE
A SOMEONE
IN THE WIDE WORLD
JUST MADE FOR ME.
NOW I SEE
I HAD TO SAVE MY LOVE
FOR YOU.
I NEVER GAVE MY LOVE
TILL YOU.
AND THROUGH
MY LONELY HEART
DEMANDING IT,
CUPID
TOOK A HAND
IN IT.
I HADN'T ANYONE TILL YOU.

Lyrics verse 1:
WHETHER YOU'RE TWENTY
AND STARTING IN LIFE
WHETHER TO THIRTY
YOU'VE GROWN.
WHETHER TO FORTY
A HUSBAND OR WIFE,
WHETHER YOU'RE FIFTY,
A DARBY OR JOAN,
THERE'S ONE THING CERTAIN
THAT YOU'LL HAVE TO OWN:

Chorus:
LOVE IS THE SWEETEST THING,
WHAT ELSE ON EARTH
COULD EVER BRING
SUCH HAPPINESS
TO EVERYTHING
AS LOVE'S OLD STORY.
LOVE IS THE STRANGEST THING,
NO SONG OF BIRDS
UPON THE WING
SHALL IN OUR HEARTS
MORE SWEETLY SING
THAN LOVE'S OLD STORY.

WHATEVER HEART MAY DESIRE,
WHATEVER FATE MAY SEND,
THIS IS THE TALE
THAT NEVER WILL TIRE,
THIS IS THE SONG
WITHOUT END.

LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING,
THE OLDEST
YET THE LATEST THING,
I ONLY HOPE
THAT FATE CAN BRING
LOVE'S STORY TO YOU.

verse 2:
WHETHER YOU'VE GONE
AFTER WORLDLY SUCCESS,
MAKING YOUR PLACE
IN THE SUN
WHETHER YOUR INCOME'S
A MILLION OR LESS,
JUST WHEN YOU THINK
LL THE PRIZES YOU'VE WON,
YOU'LL WAKE TO LEARN
AFTER ALL'S SAID AND DONE:

Chorus:
LOVE IS THE SWEETEST THING,
WHAT ELSE ON EARTH
COULD EVER BRING
SUCH HAPPINESS
TO EVERYTHING
AS LOVE'S OLD STORY.
LOVE IS THE STRANGEST THING,
NO SONG OF BIRDS
UPON THE WING
SHALL IN OUR HEARTS
MORE SWEETLY SING
THAN LOVE'S OLD STORY.

WHATEVER HEART MAY DESIRE,
WHATEVER FATE MAY SEND,
THIS IS THE TALE
THAT NEVER WILL TIRE,
THIS IS THE SONG
WITHOUT END.

LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING,
THE OLDEST
YET THE LATEST THING,
I ONLY HOPE
THAT FATE CAN BRING
LOVE'S STORY TO YOU.

Lyrics LOVE LOCKED OUT
IN ALL THE COLD AND RAIN,
LOVE LOCKED OUT
MAY NEVER COME AGAIN.
LOVE LOCKED OUT
AND WEEPING BITTER TEARS,
NO-ONE EVER HEARS HIM CALLING.
NO-ONE NEEDS
THE PRECIOUS GIFT HE BRINGS,
NO-ONE HEEDS
THE SONG OF LOVE HE SINGS,
ON THE DOOR
HE BEATS HIS TINY WINGS,
JUST LOVE LOCKED OUT.

A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE
IS A WORLD WITHOUT LIFE,
A SAD WORLD FULL OF GLOOM,
SO SEE THERE'S A PLACE
FOR LOVE IN YOUR HEART,
WHY,
HE DOESN'T NEED MUCH ROOM.

LOVE IS WELL WORTH
THE WAITING FOR,
WHEN HE COMES KNOCKING
AT YOUR DOOR,
FLING IT WIDE OPEN,
FOR LOVE LOCKED OUT
WILL COME NO MORE,
NO MORE.

Lyrics verse:
WHEN TROUBLES
GET ME,
CARES BESET ME
AND WON'T LET ME
GO,
I TURN TO YOU
FOR CONSOLATION.
THERE I FIND
NEW PEACE OF MIND
TO LEAVE BEHIND
MY WOE
I TURN TO YOU
AS I SHALL ALWAYS
DO.

Chorus:
THE TOUCH OF YOUR LIPS
UPON MY BROW
YOUR LIPS
THAT ARE COOL
AND SWEET
SUCH TENDERNESS
LIES
IN THEIR SOFT CARESS,
MY HEART
FORGETS TO BEAT.
THE TOUCH
OF YOUR HANDS
UPON MY HEAD,
THE LOVE
IN YOUR EYES
A-SHINE
AND NOW AT LAST
THE MOMENT DIVINE,
THE TOUCH OF YOUR LIPS
ON MINE.

Lyrics I DON'T NEED
YOUR PHOTOGRAPH,
TO KEEP
BY MY BED,
YOUR PICTURE
IS ALWAYS
IN MY HEAD.
I DON'T NEED
YOUR PORTRAIT,
DEAR,
TO CALL YOU
TO MIND,
FOR SLEEPING
OR WAKING,
DEAR,
I FIND:

THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU,
AND I FORGET TO DO
THE LITTLE
ORDINARY THINGS
THAT EVERYONE
OUGHT TO DO.
I'M LIVING IN
A KIND OF DAYDREAM,
I'M HAPPY
AS A KING,
AND FOOLISH
THO' IT MAY SEEM,
THAT'S EVERYTHING.
THE MERE IDEA
OF YOU,
THE LONGING HERE
FOR YOU,
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
HOW SLOW
THE MOMENTS GO
UNTIL I'M NEAR
TO YOU.
I SEE YOUR FACE
IN EVERY FLOWER
YOUR EYES
IN STARS ABOVE,
IT'S JUST
THE THOUGHT OF YOU,
THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU,
MY LOVE.

I HOLD YOU
RESPONSIBLE,
I'LL TAKE IT
TO LAW,
I NEVER HAVE FELT
LIKE THIS BEFORE.
I'M SUING
FOR DAMAGES,
EXCUSES WON'T DO,
I'LL ONLY BE
SATISFIED
WITH YOU

THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU,
AND I FORGET TO DO
THE LITTLE
ORDINARY THINGS
THAT EVERYONE
OUGHT TO DO.
I'M LIVING
IN A KIND
OF DAYDREAM,
I'M HAPPY
AS A KING,
AND FOOLISH THO'
IT MAY SEEM,
THAT'S EVERYTHING.
THE MERE IDEA
OF YOU,
THE LONGING HERE
FOR YOU,
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW

THE MOMENTS GO
UNTIL I'M NEAR
TO YOU.
I SEE YOUR FACE
IN EVERY FLOWER
