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 verse 1:
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY
FOR A WEDDING IN MAY!
SEE THE PEOPLE
ALL STARE
AT THE LOVABLE PAIR.
SHE'S A VISION OF JOY,
HE'S THE LUCKIEST BOY.
IN HIS WEDDING ARRAY
HEAR HIM SMILINGLY SAY:

Chorus:
THE BELL'S ARE RINGING
FOR ME AND MY GAL,
THE BIRDS ARE SINGING
FOR ME AND MY GAL.
EV'RYBODY'S BEEN KNOWING
TO A WEDDING THEY'RE GOING
AND FOR WEEKS
THEY'VE BEEN SEWING,
EV'RY SUSIE AND SAL.
THEY'RE CONGREGATING
FOR ME AND MY GAL,
THE PARSON'S WAITING
FOR ME AND MY GAL.
AND SOMETIME
I'M GOIN' TO BUILD
A LITTLE HOME
FOR TWO,
FOR THREE
OR FOUR
OR MORE,
IN LOVELAND
FOR ME AND MY GAL.

verse 2:
SEE THE RELATIVES THERE
LOOKING OVER THE PAIR!
THEY CAN TELL
AT A GLANCE
IT'S A LOVING ROMANCE.
IT'S A WONDERFUL SIGHT
AS THE FAMILIES UNITE.
GEE!
IT MAKES THE BOY PROUD
AS HE SAYS TO THE CROWD:

Chorus:
THE BELL'S ARE RINGING
FOR ME AND MY GAL,
THE BIRDS ARE SINGING
FOR ME AND MY GAL.
EV'RYBODY'S BEEN KNOWING
TO A WEDDING THEY'RE GOING
AND FOR WEEKS
THEY'VE BEEN SEWING,
EV'RY SUSIE AND SAL.
THEY'RE CONGREGATING
FOR ME AND MY GAL,
THE PARSON'S WAITING
FOR ME AND MY GAL.
AND SOMETIME
I'M GOIN' TO BUILD
A LITTLE HOME
FOR TWO,
FOR THREE
OR FOUR
OR MORE,
IN LOVELAND
FOR ME AND MY GAL.

Lyrics MY BABY'S LIKE ME,
WANTS TO DO THIS,
WANTS TO DO THAT.
AND SO WE DO
JUST AS WE PLEASE.
WE HATE TO BE TOLD
NOT TO GO HERE,
NOT TO GO THERE,
BECAUSE OUR SENTIMENTS
ARE THESE.

WHEN WE WANT TO LOVE,
WE LOVE.
WHEN WE WANT TO KISS,
WE KISS.
WITH A LITTLE PETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE.
WHEN WE WANT TO WORK,
WE WORK.
WHEN WE WANT TO PLAY,
WE PLAY.
IN A HAPPY SETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE.

MAYBE WE DO
THE RIGHT THING,
MAYBE WE DO
THE WRONG,
SPENDING EACH DAY
JUST WINDING OUR WAY
ALONG.

WHEN WE WANT TO SING,
WE SING.
WHEN WE WANT TO DANCE,
WE DANCE.
YOU CAN DO YOUR BETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE!

Lyrics MOON OVER MIAMI,
SHINE ON MY LOVE AND ME,
SO WE CAN STROLL
BESIDE THE ROLL,
OF THE ROLLING SEA.
MOON OVER MIAMI,
SHINE ON AS WE BEGIN,
A DREAM OR TWO
THAT MAY COME TRUE,
WHEN THE TIDE COMES IN.

HARK TO THE SONG
OF THE SMILING TROUBADOURS,
HARK TO THE THROBBING GUITARS,
HEAR HOW THE WAVES
OFFER THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE,
AFTER EACH SONG TO THE STARS.

MOON OVER MIAMI,
YOU KNOW WE'RE WAITING FOR,
A LITTLE LOVE,
A LITTLE KISS
ON MIAMI SHORE.

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!

Lyrics I SAILED AWAY
TO TREASURE ISLAND
AND MY HEART
STOOD STILL
WHEN I LANDED
ON THE SILVERY SHORE.
WE MET THAT DAY
ON TREASURE ISLAND
AND THE SMILE YOU GAVE
WAS THE TREASURE
I'D BEEN CRAVING FOR.

THEN CAME
THOSE MOMENTS OF BLISS
IN THE SHADE
OF THE SHELTERING PALMS.
I STILL REMEMBER YOUR KISS
AS YOU NESTLED
WITHIN MY ARMS.

I LOOKED FOR GOLD
ON TREASURE ISLAND
AND I FOUND THAT GOLD
WHEN YOU GAVE
YOUR GOLDEN LOVE TO ME.

Lyrics ROSE OF THE RIO GRANDE,
ROSE OF THE BORDERLAND.
ONE WORD, THEN HAND IN HAND
WE'LL LEAVE THE PREACHER'S SIDE ROOM,
HAPPY LITTLE BRIDE
AND BRIDEGROOM.
OVER THE HILLS OF SAND,
I'VE GOT YOUR LOVE NEST PLANNED.
YOU'LL CLAIM IT,
I'LL NAME IT
ROSE OF RIO GRANDE.
