Lyrics LOVE COMES ALONG
LIKE A POPULAR SONG
ANY TIME OR ANYWHERE AT ALL.
RAIN OR SUNSHINE,
SPRING OR FALL,
SAY, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
WHEN IT MAY SAY HELLO
IN A VERY UNEXPECTED PLACE.
FOR EXAMPLE, TAKE MY CASE:

IT WAS A LUCKY APRIL SHOWER,
IT WAS THE MOST CONVENIENT DOOR,
I FOUND A MILLION DOLLAR BABY
IN A FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.
THE RAIN CONTINUED FOR AN HOUR,
I HUNG AROUND FOR THREE OR FOUR,
AROUND A MILLION DOLLAR BABY
IN A FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.

SHE WAS SELLING CHINA,
AND WHEN SHE MADE THOSE EYES,
I KEPT BUYING CHINA
UNTIL THE CROWD GOT WISE.

INCIDENTALLY,
IF YOU SHOULD RUN INTO A SHOWER,
JUST STEP INSIDE MY COTTAGE DOOR,
AND MEET THE MILLION-DOLLAR BABY
FROM THE FIVE AND TEN CENT STORE.

Lyrics WHAT'S CUTE
ABOUT LITTLE CUTIE?
IT'S HER BEAUTY,
NOT BRAINS;
OLD FATHER TIME
WILL NEVER HARM YOU
IF YOUR CHARM
STILL REMAINS.
AFTER YOU GROW OLD,
BABY,
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE
A COLD BABY...

KEEP YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL,
IT'S YOUR DUTY
TO BE BEAUTIFUL;
KEEP YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL
IF YOU WANT TO BE LOVED.

IF YOU'RE WISE,
EXERCISE
ALL THE FAT OFF.
TAKE IT OFF,
OFF OF HERE,
OFF OF THERE.
WHEN YOU ARE SEEN
ANYWHERE
WITH YOU HAT OFF,
WEAR A MARCEL WAVE
IN YOUR HAIR.

TAKE CARE
OF ALL THOSE CHARMS,
AND YOU'LL ALWAYS BE
IN SOMEONE'S ARMS:
KEEP YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL
IF YOU WANT TO BE LOVED.

Lyrics FELLOWS, IF YOU'RE ARN,
I WILL SPIN A YARN
THAT WAS TOLD TO ME
BY ABLE SEAMAN JONES.
ONCE HE HAD THE BLUES,
SO HE TOOK A CRUISE
FAR AWAY FROM NIGHT-CLUBS
AND FROM SAXOPHONES.
HE SAID, YO HO,
I'VE MADE A CERTAIN PORT,
AND WHEN YOU TALK
ABOUT REAL HE-MAN SPORT.

HOT GINGER AND DYNAMITE,
THERE'S NOTHING BUT THAT
AT NIGHT,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.
THE WAY THEY CAN ENTERTAIN,
WOULD HURRY A HURRICANE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY WACKY WOO..

IN FUJIAMA,
YOU GET A MAMA,
THEN YOUR TROUBLES INCREASE.
IN SOME PAGODA,
SHE ORDERS SODA,
EARTH-SHAKE MILK-SHAKES,
TEN CENTS A PIECE.
THEY KISSY AND HUGGY NICE
OH, BY JINGO!
IT'S WORTH THE PRICE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.

NOW WHEN THE DAY IS WARM,
YOU CAN KEEP IN FORM
WITH A BOWL OF RICE
BENEATH A PARASOL.
EVERY GENTLE MAN
HAS TO USE A FAN,
AND THEY ONLY USE SUSPENDERS
IN THE FALL.
THAT'S WHERE THE GIRLS
DON'T THINK OF RINGS AND FURS,
GOSH, IT'S THE NICEST PLACE
THAT EVER WERES..

THEY GIVE YOU A CARRIAGE FREE,
THE HORSE IS A JAPANEE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.
THEY SIT YOU UPON THE FLOOR,
NO WONDER YOUR PANTS GET SORE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN WICKY-WACKY WOO.

WITH SWEET KIMONER,
I PULLED A BONER,
I KEPT IT UP AT HIGH SPEED..
I GOT RHUMATICS,
AND THEN PSYATICS,
HALATOSISIS,
THAT'S GUARANTEED,
YOU JUST HAVE TO ACT
YOUR AGE
OR WIND UP INSIDE A CAGE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.

WITH AN ICE-CREAM CONE
AND A BOTTLE OF TEA,
YOU CAN REST ALL DAY
BY THE HICKORY TREE.
BUT WHEN NIGHT COMES ROUND,
OH GOSH, OH GEE,
MOTHER, MOTHER, MOTHER,
PIN A ROSE ON ME.

THOSE PRETTY MAMAS
IN PINK PYJAMAS,
THEY TRY TO GIVE YOU A KISS.
THOSE TORRID TEASES
IN B.V.D.SES,
HEAVEN HELP A SAILOR
ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS!
NOT TOO GENTLE
AND NOT TOO ROUGH,
BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TELL THEM
WHEN YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO!

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.

Lyrics MY DAYDREAMS
LIE BURIED
IN AUTUMN LEAVES,
THEY'RE COVERED
WITH AUTUMN RAIN.
THE TIME
IS SWEET SEPTEMBER,
THE PLACE,
A SHADY LANE.
I'M RIDING
THE WINGS
OF AN AUTUMN BREEZE,
BACK TO MY MEMORIES.

THE LEAVES OF BROWN
CAME TUMBLING DOWN,
REMEMBER?
IN SEPTEMBER,
IN THE RAIN.
THE SUN WENT OUT
JUST LIKE A DYING EMBER,
THAT SEPTEMBER,
IN THE RAIN.

TO EVERY WORD OF LOVE
I HEARD YOU WHISPER,
THE RAINDROPS SEEMED TO PLAY
A SWEET REFRAIN.

THOUGH SPRING IS HERE,
TO ME
IT'S STILL SEPTEMBER,
THAT SEPTEMBER,
IN THE RAIN.

Lyrics YOU'RE MY EVERYTHING
UNDERNEATH THE SUN,
YOU'RE MY EVERYTHING
ROLLED UP INTO ONE.
YOU'RE MY ONLY DREAM,
MY ONLY REAL REALITY.
YOU'RE MY IDEA
OF A PERFECT PERSONALITY.
YOU'RE MY EVERYTHING,
EVERYTHING I NEED,
YOU'RE THE SONG I SING
AND THE BOOK I READ.
YOU ARE WAY BEYOND BELIEF,
AND JUST TO MAKE IT BRIEF,
YOU'RE MY WINTER,
SUMMER,
SPRING,
MY EVERYTHING.
