I'VE NEITHER WEALTH

I'LL GET BY

DEAR,
I'LL GET BY

Lyrics SWEETHEART,
I LOVE YOU,
THINK THE WORLD
OF YOU,
BUT I'M AFRAID
YOU DON'T CARE FOR ME.
YOU NEVER SHOW IT,
DON'T LET ME KNOW IT,
EV'RYONE SAYS I'M A FOOL
TO BE PINING
THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
WHY DO YOU ACT
LIKE YOU DO?

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN
TO BE MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?

I TREAT YOU SWEETLY,
I'M YOURS COMPLETELY,
THINK OF YOU,
DREAM OF YOU,
ALL DAY THROUGH.
I THOUGHT I PLEASED YOU,
WHATEVER SEIZED YOU
THAT MADE YOU TREAT ME
THE WAY YOU DO?
LOVE YOU,
I ALWAYS WILL,
THINK OF YOU ONLY,
AND STILL...

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN TO BE
MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?

Lyrics THE MOON WAS YELLOW
AND THE NIGHT
WAS YOUNG,
A SMILE
BROUGHT US TOGETHER,
AND I WAS WONDERING
WHETHER
WE'D MEET AGAIN
SOME DAY.
THE MOON WAS YELLOW
AND A SONG WAS SUNG,
THAT VOCAL
INSPIRATION,
GAVE ME THE
INCLINATION
TO GIVE MY HEART
AWAY!

HERE WE ARE!
IS OUR ROMANCE
TO CONTINUE?
WILL IT BE
MY LUCK
TO WIN YOU,
MAY I LOOK
THAT FAR?

MY LOVE IS MELLOW,
AND MY HOPES
ARE STRUNG,
AROUND THAT
CUPID FELLOW,
BEHOLD!
THE MOON IS YELLOW,
AND THE NIGHT
IS YOUNG!

SAY YOU'RE MINE!
YOU INTOXICATE,
YOU DO.
I RESIGN
TO THE LURE
OF YOUR CHARM,
YOU COMBINE
MESMERISM
WITH VOODOO,
AND LIKE AN ANGEL
YOU FLY HIGH,
THERE'LL BE NOBODY
CLIPPING YOUR WINGS.
MY VERY SOUL
HAS GONE BYE-BYE
I'M A PUPPET
ON STRINGS.

HERE WE ARE!
IS OUR ROMANCE
TO CONTINUE?
WILL IT BE
MY LUCK
TO WIN YOU,
MAY I LOOK
THAT FAR?

AH!

MY LOVE IS MELLOW,
AND MY HOPES
ARE STRUNG,
AROUND THAT
CUPID FELLOW,
BEHOLD!
THE MOON IS YELLOW,
AND THE NIGHT
IS YOUNG!


Spanish lyrics:

BRILLO LA LUNA
Y EL AMOR LLAMO,
Y EN ALAS DE
LA BRISA,
ME ENVIASTE
TU SONRISA
COMO UNA
INSPIRACION.
BRILLO LA LUNA
Y EL AMOR
LLAMO,
SU CANTO
PEREGRINO,
EN MANOS
DEL DESTINO
DEJO
MI CORAZON!

DE MI YA!
SI ES MI SUERTE
QUE ALGUN DIA?
PUEDA YO
LLAMARTE MIA,
DIME SI SERA?

AH!

LA VIDA ENTERA,
MI ALMA CONMOVIO:
SI NO HA
DE SER PRIMERA,
VEN QUE
LA LUNA ESPERA
Y EL AMOR LLAMO!

VEN A MI,
QUIERO SENTIRTE
MIA,
VEN A MI,
QUIERO QUE
DIGAS SI
VEN A MI,
ERES CUAL MELODIA,
DE UNA CANCION
DE LUZ Y AMOR,
ERES CUAL LINDA
FLOR DE PASION,
Y HAS ENCENDIDO
UN ARDOR
DENTRO MI CORAZON.

DE MI YA!
SI ES MI
SUERTE QUE
ALGUN DIA?
PUEDA YO
LLAMARTE MIA,
DIME SI SERA?

AH!

LA VIDA ENTERA,
MI ALMA CONMOVIO:
SI NO HA
DE SER PRIMERA,
VEN QUE
LA LUNA ESPERA
Y EL AMOR LLAMO!

Alt. Title Walking My Baby Back Home

Writers Fred E. Ahlert, Roy Turk

Genres Standard, Pop

Recorded 2008

Lyrics GEE! IT'S GREAT,
AFTER BEING OUT
LATE,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.
ARM IN ARM,
OVER MEADOW
AND FARM,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.
WE GO ALONG
HARMONIZING
A SONG,
OR I'M RECITING
A POEM.
OWLS GO BY,
AND THEY GIVE ME
THE EYE,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

WE STOP
FOR A WHILE,
SHE GIVES ME
A SMILE,
AND SNUGGLES
HER HEAD
TO MY CHEST.
WE START IN
TO PET,
AND THAT'S
WHEN I GET
HER TALCUM
ALL OVER
MY VEST.

AFTER I
KINDA STRAIGHTEN
MY TIE,
SHE HAS TO BORROW
MY COMB.
ONE KISS THEN,
I CONTINUE AGAIN,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

SHE'S AFRAID
OF THE DARK,
SO I HAVE
TO PARK
OUTSIDE
OF HER DOOR
TILL IT'S LIGHT.
SHE SAYS
IF I TRY
TO KISS HER
SHE'LL CRY
I'LL DRY
HER TEARS
ALL THROUGH
THE NIGHT.

HAND IN HAND
TO A BARBECUE STAND
RIGHT FROM HER DOORWAY
WE ROAM.
EATS AND THEN
IT'S A PLEASURE
AGAIN,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
WHY MUST I LIVE IN DREAMS
OF THE DAYS THAT I USED TO KNOW?
WHY CAN'T I FIND
REAL PEACE OF MIND,
AND RETURN TO THE LONG AGO?

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.

[verse 2]:
MEM'RIES COME BACK TO ME
OF A SUNSET BEHIND A HILL.
EACH NEW BORN DAY
TAKES ME AWAY
TO THE PLACE
THAT I LONG FOR STILL.

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
