I'm A Shy Guy Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

I'm just a shy guy,
My, I'm a 'fraid-to-try guy
No lie.
There's a gal that I idolize
But I just can't seem to hypnotize.

And when she pets me,
You betcha, it gets me.
And everytime I hold her hand,
I'm just too shy to say the things I plan.

Everytime she's close to me,
My heart is filled with ecstasy,
And like a dope, I let the chance slip by.

There, I should have told her then
But all I did was sit and grin,
And I ended up so mad that I could cry.

'Cause I'm a shy guy
Wish I was a sly guy
Then I could say, "Baby, baby, I love you"
Just like those guys in moving pictures all do.

I'm just a shy guy
Wish I was a sly guy
Then I could say, "Baby, baby, I love you"
Just like those guys in moving pictures all do.

Embraceable You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

Embrace me
My sweet embraceable you
Embrace me
You, irreplaceable you

Just one look at you
My heart grows tipsy in me
You and you alone
Bring out the gypsy in me

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms around you

Don't be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you

Don't be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

What Is This Thing Called Love? Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

I was a humdrum person
Leading a life apart
When love flew in through my window wide
And quickened my hum-drum heart
Love flew in through my window
I was so happy then
But after love had stayed a little while
Love flew out again

What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?
I saw you there one wonderful day
You took my heart and threw it away
That's why I ask the Lord in Heaven above
What is this thing called love?

You gave me days of sunshine
You gave me nights of cheer
You made my life an enchanted dream
'Til somebody else came near
Somebody else came near you
I felt the winter's chill
And now I sit and wonder night and day
Why I love you still?

Come To Baby, Do! Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

I took a choo-choo-choo-choo fast as I could take a choo-choo,
I've come a long-long-long-long way to take you in my arms.
And now it's your first move to prove that you've been true,
Come to baby, do.

I've been away-way-way-way-way beyond the blue horizon,
I hope that no-no-no-no-no one else is on your mind.
So pucker up, my sweet, and meet your Waterloo,
Come to baby, do.

Stop me from guessing,
T'ain't no time to tease.
Stop all your messin',
And put your beggin' baby at ease.

I wanna love-love-love you just the way I wanna love you,
I'm gonna try-try-try to try to make you understand.
When all is said and done, the one for me is you.
Come to baby, do.

Come to baby, do.

I've come a long, long way to kiss ya
You'll never know how much I missed ya.
Stop your teasin'
Come to baby, do.

All For You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

When you raise your eyes and make believe,
All the stars come out and paint a world of blue.
There's my heart right up your sleeve
Waiting all for you.

When you smile on me, the world is mine,
And the dreams I dream, I know will all come true.
Every care becomes divine
Waiting all for you.

My heart is beating to the old refrain
When I'm alone with you.
My heart's repeating, "I'm in love again"
Can't we hold a rendez-vous?

You're the dreams I dream, the song I sing
You're the stars and moon and nearly everything.
Life would be a symphony,
Waiting all for you.

My heart is beating to the old refrain
When I'm alone with you.
My heart's repeating, "I'm in love again"
Can't we hold a rendez-vous?

You're the dreams I dream, the song I sing
You're the stars and moon and nearly everything.
Life would be a symphony,
Living all for you.

Route 66 Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way
Take the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66

It winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Now you go through St. Louis
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty
You see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66

Knock me a kiss, you'll never miss
When I'm ready to go.
But if you can't smile and say yes,
Please don't cry and say no!

Squeeze me a squoze in these fine clothes,
Mmmm...I love you so.
But if you can't smile and say yes,
Please don't cry and say no!

When I ask for a date, the answer is no.
You don't know what you're saying.
Don't you know the war's on,
Everything is rationed,
How 'bout that jive, keep me alive?

Baby, let bygones be bygones,
'Cause men are scarce as nylons.
And if you can't smile and say yes,
Please don't cry and say no!

Baby, let bygones be bygones,
'Cause men are scarce as nylons.
And if you can't smile and say yes,
Please don't cry and say no, no, no, baby
Please don't cry and say no.

For You My Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Jumpin' At Capitol

For you, my love, I'd do most anything,
For you, my love, I'd do most anything,
I love you baby, and I hope you feel the same!

For you, my love, I'd swim the ocean blue,
For you, my love, I'd swim the ocean blue,
There's nothing in this world that I wouldn't do for
You!

Let's go out tonight and celebrate,
I've a party plan for you that just won't wait!
For you, my love, I'd do most anything,
I love you baby, and I hope you feel the same!

You made me drink, you made me dream,
Changed my drink to milk and cream1
I said goodbye to all the mob,
I even went out and got a job!
For you, my love, I'd do most anything,
I love you baby, and I hope you feel the same!

I don't know why, I made you cry
I'm sorry sweetheart and yet
Though you shouldn't be lenient with me
I hope you'll forgive and forget

What can I say, dear, after I say I'm sorry?
What can I do to prove it to you, I'm sorry?
I didn't mean to ever be mean to you
If I didn't care I wouldn't feel like I do
I was all wrong but right or wrong I don't blame you
Why should I take somebody like you and shame you
I know that I made you cry, and I'm so sorry dear
So what can I say, dear, after I say I'm sorry?

You made me glad, I made you sad
I made you lonesome and blue
And who ever knew
Who'd ever think that I would be crying to you

What can I say, dear, after I say I'm sorry?
What can I do to prove it to you, I'm sorry?
I didn't mean to ever be mean to you
If I didn't care I wouldn't feel like I do
I was all wrong but right or wrong I don't blame you
Why should I take somebody like you and shame you
I know that I made you cry, and I'm so sorry dear
So what can I say, dear, after I say I'm sorry?

I Know That You Know Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

I know that you know
That I'll go where you go
I choose you, won't lose you
I wish you knew how much I long
To hold you in my arms

This time is my time
Will soon be goodbye time
Then in the star light, hold me tight
With one more little kiss
Say, nighty night

I know that you know
That I'll go where you go
I choose you, won't lose you
I wish you knew how much I long
To hold you in my arms

This time is my time
Will soon be goodbye time
Then in the star light, hold me tight
With one more little kiss

I Don't Know Why (I Just Do) Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

All day long you're asking me what I see in you
All day long I'm answering but what good does it do?
I have nothing to explain

I just love you, love you, and I'll tell you once again
I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why, I just do
I don't know why you thrill me like you do
I don't know why, you just do

You never seem to want my romancing
The only time you hold me is when we're dancing
I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why, I just do

You never seem to want my romancing
The only time you hold me is when we're dancing
I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why, I just do

I'm In The Mood For Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me.
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love.

Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh! Is it any wonder
I'm in the mood for love?

Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade?
We've put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid!

If there's a cloud above
If it should rain we'll let it
But for tonight, forget it!
I'm in the mood for love

To A Wild Rose Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

Come, oh, songs! come, oh, dreams!
Soft the gates of day close,
Sleep, my birds, sleep, streams!
Sleep, my wild rose!

Pool and bud, hill and deep,
You who wore my robes, sleep!
Droop, East! die, West!
Let my land rest.

Woods, I woke your boughs!
Hills, I woke your elf-throngs!
Land, All thy hopes and woes
Rang from me in songs!

Come, oh, songs! come, oh,dreams!
In our house is deep rest,
Through the pines gleams, gleams,
Bright the gold West,

There the flutes shall cry,
There the viols weep,
Laugh, my dreams, and sigh!
Sing, and vigil keep,
Awake, wild rose.

Look What You've Done To Me Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

Hope they never end this song
This could take us all night long
I looked at the moon and I felt blue
Then I looked again and I saw you
Eyes like fire in the night
Bridges burning with their light
Now I want to spend the whole night through
And Honey, Yes, I'd like to spend it all on you

Love, look what you've done to me
Never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh, love, you wouldn't lie to me
Leading me to feel this way

They might fade and turn to stone
Let's get crazy all alone
Hold me closer than you'd ever dare
Close your eyes and I'll be there
After all is said and done
After all you are the one
Take me up your stairs and through the door
Take me where we don't care anymore

Love, look what you've done to me
Never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh, love, you wouldn't lie to me would you
Leading me to feel this way

Love, look what you've done to me
Never thought I'd fall again so easily
Oh, love, you wouldn't lie to me
Leading me to feel this way

I'm Thru With Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : The King Cole Trio, Vol. 2

I'm thru with love,
I'll never fall again.
Said I do to love,
Don't ever call again.
For I must have you
Or no one.
That's why I'm thru with love.

I've locked my heart.
I keep my feelings there.
I have stopped my heart
Like an icy frigidaire.
For I need to care for no one.
That's why I'm thru with love.

Why did you leave me
To think that you cared.
You didn't need me.
You have your share
Of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
Their deep devotion.
Emotion.

Did you good by the spring
And all it meant to me
A good neighbor
The things that used to be.
For I must have you or no one.
That's why I'm thru with love.
That's why I'm thru with love.

Picture a penthouse way up in the sky
With hinges on chimneys for stars to go by
A sweet slice of heaven for just you and I
When we're alone

From all of society we'll stay aloof
And live in propriety there on the roof
Two heavenly hermits, we will be in truth
When we're alone

We'll view life's mad pattern
As we view old Manhattan
Then we can thank our lucky stars
That we're living as we are

In our little penthouse we'll always contrive
To keep love and romance forever alive
In view of the Hudson, just over the drive
When we're alone

Somebody loves me, I wonder who
I wonder who he can be
Somebody loves me, I wish I knew
Who can he be worries me

For every boy who passes me, I shout "Hey, maybe"
You were meant to be my loving baby, baby, oh
Somebody loves me, I wonder who
Maybe it's you

For every boy who passes me, I shout "Hey, maybe"
You were meant to be my loving baby, baby

Somebody loves me, I wonder who
Maybe, it's
Baby, it's

Laura Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

You know the feeling of something half remembered
Of something that never happened, yet you recall it well.
You know the feeling of recognizing someone
That you've never met as far as you could tell, well.

Laura is the face in the misty light,
Footsteps that you hear down the hall.
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall.
And you see Laura on the train that is passing through.
Those eyes, how familiar they seem.
She gave your very first kiss to you.
That was Laura but she's only a dream.

Polka Dots And Moonbeams Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

And when God gave out rhythm
He sure was good to you
You could add, subtract, multiply and divide by two
I know today's your birthday
And I did not buy no rose
But I'll sing this song instead
'An I call it Popsicle Toes

Popsicle Toes
Popsicle Toes are always froze
Popsicle Toes
Oh you're so brave to expose all those Popsicle Toes

You must've been Miss Pennsylvania
With your bedroom attitude
How come you always load your Pentax when I'm in the nude
We ought to have a birthday party
And you can wear your birthday clothes
We can hit the floor and go explore
Those Popsicle Toes

Popsicle Toes (ooh)
Popsicle Toes are always froze (ooh ooh)
Popsicle Toes (wah ooh)
Oh you're so brave to expose all those Popsicle Toes (ooh)

Don't 'cha know you got the nicest North America
This sailor ever saw
I'd like to feel your warm Brazil, touch your Panama
Well your Tierra del Fuegos are nearly always froze
We got to see-saw until we unthaw
Those Popsicle Toes

Popsicle Toes (wah ooh)
Popsicle Toes are always froze (wah ooh)
Popsicle Toes (ooh)
Oh you're so brave to expose all those Popsicle Toes
Popsicle Toes (wah ooh)
Popsicle Toes are always froze (wah ooh)
Popsicle Toes (ooh)
Oh you're so brave to expose all those Popsicle Toes

Down by the Old Mill Stream,
Where I first met you,
With your eyes of blue,
Dressed in gingham too,
It was there I knew,
That you loved me true.

If I Should Lose You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

If I should lose you
The stars would fall from the skies
If I should lose you
The leaves would wither and die

The birds in May-time
Would sing a lonely refrain
And I would wander around
Hating the sound of rain

With you beside me
No wind in winter would blow
With you beside me
A rose would bloom in the snow

I gave you my love
But I was living a dream
And living would seem in vain
If I lost you

Rose Room Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

I want to take you to a little room
A little room where all the roses bloom
I want to lead you into Nature's hall
Where ev'ry year the roses give a ball
They have an orchestra up in the trees
For their musicians are the birds and bees
And they will sing us a song
As we are strolling along

In sunny Roseland, where summer breezes are playing
Where the honey bees are "A-Maying"
There all the roses are swaying
Dancing while the meadow brook flows
The moon when shining is more than ever designing
For 'tis ever then I am pining
Pining to be sweetly reclining
Somewhere in Roseland
Beside a beautiful rose

The ball is over and tulips meet
Their little kisses are so short and sweet
The lilies nod to the forget-me-nots
When they're departing in their flower pots
But all the roses with their spirits high
Remain to love until they droop and die
And dear, why shouldn't it be
Just so with you and with me

In sunny Roseland, where summer breezes are playing
Where the honey bees are "A-Maying"
There all the roses are swaying
Dancing while the meadow brook flows
The moon when shining is more than ever designing
For 'tis ever then I am pining
Pining to be sweetly reclining
Somewhere in Roseland
Beside a beautiful rose

It Could Happen To You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

Hide your heart from sight,
Lock your dreams at night,
It could happen to you.

Don't count stars
Or you might stumble,
Someone drops a sigh
And down you tumble,
Keep an eye on spring,
Run when church bells ring.

It could happen to you
All I did was wonder
How your arms would be
And it happened to me

Don't Blame Me Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

Don't blame me
For falling in love with you.
I'm under your spell
But how can I help it?
Don't blame me.

Can't you see
When you do the things you do
If I can't conceal
The thrill that I'm feeling,
Don't blame me.

I can't help it
If that doggone moon above
Makes me want
Someone like you to love.

Blame your kiss
As sweet as a kiss can be,
And blame all your charms
That melt in my arms,
But don't blame me.

Blame your kiss
As sweet as a kiss can be,
And blame all your charms
That melt in my arms,
But don't blame me.

Blame all your charms
That melt in my arms,
But don't blame me.

Walkin' My Baby Back Home Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

Gee, it's great after bein' out late
Walkin' my baby back home
Arm in arm over meadow and farm
Walkin' my baby back home

We go 'long harmonizing a song
Or I'm recitin' 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 on 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
Once kiss then I continue again
Walkin' my baby back home

She's 'fraid 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 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
Talkin' my baby
Lovin' my baby
I don't mean maybe
Walkin' my baby back home

Too Marvelous For Words Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

I search for phrases
To sing your praises
But there aren't any magic adjectives
To tell you all you are!

You're just too marvelous
Too marvelous for words
Like glorious, glamorous
And that old standby, amorous

It's all too wonderful
I'll never find the words
That say enough, tell enough
I mean, they just aren't swell enough

You're much too much
And just too very, very
To ever be in Webster's Dictionary

And so I'm borrowing
A love song from the birds
To tell you that you're marvelous
Too marvelous for words

Too Young Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

They try to tell us we're too young
Too young to really be in love
They say that love's a word
A word we've only heard
But can't begin to know the meaning of

And yet we're not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

[Instrumental Interlude]

And yet we're not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

That's My Girl Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade

That's my girl
Take a look at her, she belongs to me
Yes, that's my girl
Hands off, don't touch

She looks just like an angel
But she's human all the same
So I'm not takin' chances
I won't tell her address or even her name

'Cause that's my girl
I'm addin' her to my family
And I love that girl
And everything's fine

So until the day that she says yes
Keep my fingers crossed
'Cause that's my girl
And she's gonna stay mine

That's my girl, you hear me
I'm addin' her to my family
And I love that girl
And everything's fine

So until the day that she says yes
Keep my fingers crossed
'Cause that's my girl
And she's gonna stay mine

She's all mine, every curvy line
And even those dark brown curls
Now lay off, that's my girl

It's Only A Paper Moon Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Penthouse Serenade
(originally by Paul Whiteman)

It is only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

It is only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

Unforgettable Lyrics

Unforgettable
That's what you are,
Unforgettable
Tho' near or far.

Like a song of love that clings to me,
How the thought of you does things to me.
Never before
Has someone been more...

Unforgettable
In every way,
And forever more
That's how you'll stay.

That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am
Unforgettable, too.

[interlude]

Unforgettable
In every way,
And forever more
That's how you'll stay.

That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am

Our Love Is Here To Stay Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

It's very clear, our love is here to stay
Not for a year but ever and a day
The radio and the telephone and the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go

But oh, my dear, our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay but our love is here to stay

In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay but our love is here to stay

This Can't Be Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

This can't be love because I feel so well
No sobs, no sorrows, no sighs
This can't be love, I get no dizzy spells
My head is not in the skies

My heart does not stand still, just hear it beat
This is too sweet to be love
This can't be love because I feel so well
But still I love to look in your eyes, oh yeah

My heart does not stand still, just hear it beat
Oh, it's too sweet to be love
This can't be love because I feel so well
But still I love to look in your eyes
But still I love to look in your eyes

It's just a little street
Where old friends meet,
I'd love to wander back
Someday.

To you, it may be old,
And sort of tumbled down,
But it means a lot to folks
In my hometown.

Although I'm rich or poor,
I still feel sure
I'm welcome as the flowers in may.

It's just a little street
Where old friends meet,
And treat you in the same old way.

Although I'm rich or poor,
I still feel sure
I'm welcome as the flowers in may.

It's just a little street
Where old friends meet,
And treat you in the same old way.

Autumn Leaves Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

C'est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m'aimais et je t'aimais
Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble
Toi que m'aimais moi qui t'aimais
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s'aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants désunis

Let's Fall In Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let's take a chance
Why be afraid of it?

Let's close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it
Still we can try
To make a go of it

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let's fall in love

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover

Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let's fall in love

There Goes My Heart Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

There goes my heart, there goes the one I love
There goes the girl I wasn't worthy of
There goes my happiness, it couldn't be
There goes somebody else in place of me

Goodbye romance, it couldn't last somehow
I had my chance but it's all over now
I never thought that she could pass me by
There goes my heart and here am I

I never thought that she could pass me by
There goes my heart and here am I

Dinner For One, Please, James Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

Dinner for one please, james,
The madame will not be dining.
Yes, you may bring the wine in,
Love plays such funny games.

Dinner for one please, james,
Close madame's room, we've parted.
Please, don't look so downhearted,
Love plays such funny games.

Seems my best friend told her of another,
I had no chance to deny.

You know there has never been another,
Someday she'll find out the lie.

Maybe she's not to blame,
Leave me with silent hours.
No, don't move her favorite flowers,
Dinner for one please, james.

Maybe she's not to blame,
Leave me with silent hours.
No, don't move her favorite flowers,
Dinner for one please, james.

Almost Like Being In Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

What a day this has been
What a rare mood I'm in
Why, it's almost like being in love

There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
Why, it's almost like being in love

All the music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peal
I would swear I was falling
I could swear I was falling
It's almost like being in love

Tenderly Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we
The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

You Stepped Out Of A Dream Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

You
Stepped out of a dream,
You are too wonderful
To be what you seem.

Could there be eyes like yours?
Could there be lips like yours?
Could there be smiles like yours,
Honest and truly?

You
Stepped out of a cloud,
I want to take you away
Away from the crowd,
And have you all to myself,
Alone and apart.
Out of a dream
Safe into my heart.

You
Stepped out of a cloud,
I want to take you away
Away from the crowd,
And have you all to myself,
Alone and apart.
Out of a dream,
Safe into my heart...
Wa-dee-la-la
Out of a dream!

There Will Never Be Another You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

This is our last dance together,
Tonight soon will be long ago.
And in our moment of parting,
This is all I want you to know...

There will be many other nights like this,
And I'll be standing here with someone new.
There will be other songs to sing,
Another fall...another spring...
But there will never be another you.

There will be other lips that I may kiss,
But they won't thrill me,
Like yours used to do.
Yes, I may dream a million dreams,
But how can they come true,
If there will never, ever be another you?

Yes, I may dream a million dreams,
But how can they come true,
If there will never, ever be...
Another you?

A Thousand Thoughts Of You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

A thousand thoughts of you
Will haunt me ever after
The music of your laughter
Will serenade my heart.

A thousand thoughts of you
Will roam the night and find me
With chains of love, they'll bind me
To dreams that won't depart.

Your face,
Your smile,
The moonlight in your hair

Your lips,
Your eyes,
I'll see them everywhere.

A thousand kisses, too
Will keep me reminiscing
For there'll be no dismissing
A thousand thoughts of you.

A thousand kisses, too
Will keep me reminiscing
For there'll be no dismissing
A thousand thoughts of you.

If You Said No Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Sings For Two In Love (And More)

The stars would cry in the blue if you said no
Their tears would fall like the dew if you said no
The fragrance of the flowers would fade if you turned away
And the warmth of the summer day would leave me so cold

So hold me close in your arms and don't say no
And never ask me to leave, how could I go?
The countless stars in the heavens are trembling above
So don't say no, I beg of you, don't say no to my love

The countless stars in the heavens are trembling above
So don't say no, I beg of you, don't say no to my love

Just You, Just Me Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE

Just you, just me
Let's find a cozy spot
To cuddle and woo.
Just us, just we
I've missed an awful lot
My trouble is you.

Oh, gee!
What are your charms for?
What are my arms for?
Use your imagination!

Just you, just me
I'll tie a lover's knot
Around wonderful you.

Oh, gee!
What are your charms for?
What are my arms for?
Use your imagination!

Just you, just me
I'll tie a lover's knot
Tie a lover's knot
Tie a lover's knot
Around wonderful you.

Sweet Lorraine Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight
(originally by Rudy Vallee)

Just found joy
I'm as happy as a baby boy, baby boy
With another brand new choo-choo choy
When I met my sweet Lorraine, Lorraine, Lorraine.

A pair of eyes
That are brighter than the summer sky
When you see them, you'll realize
Why I love my sweet Lorraine.

Now when it's rainin',
I don't miss the sun
Because it's in my baby's smile, whoa ho
And to think that I'm the lucky one
That will lead her down the aisle, whoa ho ho

Each night I pray
That no one will steal her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry sweet Lorraine.

Now when it's rainin'
I don't miss the sun
Because it's in my baby's smile, whoa ho
And to think that I'm the lucky one
That will lead her down the aisle, whoa ho ho

Each night I pray
That no one will steal her heart away
I can't wait until that lucky day
When I marry sweet Lorraine.

Sometimes I'm Happy Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

Sometimes I'm happy,
Sometimes I'm blue.
My disposition
Depends on you.

I never mind
The rain from the sky
If I can find
The sun in your eyes.

Sometimes I love you,
Sometimes I hate you.
But when I hate you,
It's 'cause I love you.

That's how I am
So what can I do?
I'm happy when I'm with you.

Sometimes I love you,
Sometimes I hate you.
But when I hate you,
It's 'cause I love you.

That's how I am
So what can I do?
I'm happy when I'm with you.
I'm happy when I'm with you.

Caravan Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

Night and stars above that shine so bright
The myst'ry of their fading light
That shines upon our caravan

Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep
Across the sand so I may keep
The mem'ry of our caravan

This is so exciting
You are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As I thrill to the magic charms

Of you beside me here beneath the blue
My dream of love is coming true
Within our desert caravan!

It's Only A Paper Moon Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight
(originally by Paul Whiteman)

It is only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

It is only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

You're Looking At Me Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

Who had the girls turning hand-springs
You're Looking At Me

Crazy to love him, claimed he
Who could so misunderstand things
You're lookin' at me
Who was so sure of his conquest
Sure as a human could be
Who wound up losing the contest
You're lookin' at me, you're looking at me
Where is that boy
Who was certain his charms couldn't fail
Where is that boy
Who believed every word of this ridiculous tail
Who was so childishly flattered
Thought he'd swept her off her feet
Who woke to find his dream shattered
Might I repea-eat, might I repeat
For-or you needn't strain your eyes
To see what I want you to see
That's right, you're looking at me
Where is that boy
Who was certain his charms couldn't fail
Where is that boy
Who believed every word of this ridiculous tail
Who was so childishly flattered
Thought he'd swept her off her feet
Who woke to find his dream shattered
Might I repeat, might I repeat
For-or you needn't strain your eyes
To see what I want you to see
That's right, you're looking at me-ee...

The Lonely One Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

There is a very quiet boy
They call the lonely one
There is sorrow in his face
And sadness in his eyes
And if you look into the heart
Within the lonely one
You'll find it's been deceived
That broken was in lies.

Is it good to have cried?
With the longing to hide
All your heartaches and fears.
Is it wise to be cold, and to
Struggle, to hold back with tears.
If you could only see the boy
They call the lonely one,
You'd know that since you're gone
The lonely one is me.

Don't Let It Go To Your Head Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

So what if I came clean
And told you all you mean to me
So what if I meant every word I said
Baby don't let it go to your head
So what if I write your name
Cause you're always on my brain
In a heart, I paint it crimson red
Baby don't let it go to your head

Don't be getting any big ideas
Let me make it clear

Just cause I can't go on
Just cause I die when you're gone
Just cause I think of you in bed
Don't let it go to your head
If I looked in your eyes
One, two, too many times
And memorized every word you said
Don't let it go to your head

So what if I want to kiss
From your toes up to your lips
It don't mean that you've had me yet
You're gonna be good, I bet

I'm the one whose in control here
Let me make it clear

Just cause I can't go on
Just cause I die when you're gone
Just cause I think of you in bed
Don't let it go to your head
If I looked in your eyes
One, two, too many times

And memorized every word you said
Don't let it go to your head

Oh
Don't let it go to your head
Oh

I had a porcelain doll
I held on to it so tightly
But when it broke, I swore
I'd never hold on to something that tightly again
Don't let it go to your head
Oh, no (oh, no)

Just cause I can't go on
Just cause I die when you're gone
Just cause I think of you in bed
Don't let it go to your head
Don't let it go to your head

Just cause I can't go on
Just cause I die when you're gone
Just cause I think of you in bed
Don't let it go to your head
If I looked in your eyes (oh)
One, two, too many times
And memorized every word you said
Don't let it go to your head (oh)
Don't let it go to your head (oh)
Don't let it go to your head (don't let it, don't let it)
Don't let it go to your head (oh)

I Know That You Know Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

I know that you know
That I'll go where you go
I choose you, won't lose you
I wish you knew how much I long
To hold you in my arms

This time is my time
Will soon be goodbye time
Then in the star light, hold me tight
With one more little kiss
Say, nighty night

I know that you know
That I'll go where you go
I choose you, won't lose you
I wish you knew how much I long
To hold you in my arms

This time is my time
Will soon be goodbye time
Then in the star light, hold me tight
With one more little kiss
Say, nighty night

Blame It On My Youth Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

If I expected love when first we kissed
Blame it on my youth
If only just for you I did exist
Blame it on my youth

I believed in everything
Like a child at three
You meant more than everything
All the world to me

If you were on my mind all night and day
Blame it on my youth
If I forgot to eat and sleep and pray
Blame it on my youth

If I cried a little bit
When first I learned the truth
Don't blame it on my heart
Blame it on my youth

If you were on my mind all night and day
Blame it on my youth
If I forgot to eat and sleep and pray
Blame it on my youth

If I cried a little bit
When first I learned the truth
Don't blame it on my heart
Blame it on my youth

(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66 Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way, take the highway, that's the best.
Get your kicks on Route 66.

It winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way,
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Now you go through Saint Louie,
And Joplin, Missouri,
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty, you'll see...
Amarillo...
Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona,
Don't forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino.

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66...
Get your kicks on Route 66...
Get your kicks on Route 66!

You promised me you'd come back,
I promised to wait.
But I was a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late.

Too many long nights alone,
Not even a date.
So I got a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late.

You never did write, you never did call.
When I had the blues, you were havin' a ball.
You thought that I'd be here to run to,
Now I'm gonna do to you what I've been done to.

Too bad about you, my friend,
It could've been great.
But I was a little too lonely,
And now you're a little too late.

You never did write, you never did call.
When I had the blues, you were havin' a ball.
You thought that I'd be here to run to,
Now I'm gonna do to you what I've been done to.

Too bad about you, my friend,
It could've been great.
But I got a little too lonely,
And you were a little too late!

What Is There To Say Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

What is there to say
and what is there to do
The dream I've been seeking
has practically speaking come true

What is there to say
and how will I pull through
I knew in a moment
contentment and wholement, just you

You are so lovable
So livable
Your beauty is just unforgivable
You're made to marvel at
and words to that effect

So what is there to say
and what is there to do
My heart's in a deadlock
I'd even face wedlock with you

You are so lovable
So livable
Your beauty is just unforgivable
You're made to marvel at
and words to that effect

So what is there to say
and what is there to do
my heart's in a deadlock
I'd even face wedlock with you

Two Loves Have I Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

Two loves have I
And they tear me apart
Two loves have I
Both are in my heart

One is a flower
And the other a flame
Two loves have I
But they're not the same

When I'm in a gay mood
Tis then my light love I crave
Then again at times
My other love can make me a slave

I can't deny
That to both I am true
Two loves have I
Both of them are you

I can't deny
That to both I am true
Two loves have I
Both of them are you
Two loves have I
Both of them are you

Candy Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : After Midnight

Some say that love is sweet as a rose,
Some say it's honey and the bee,
Well sit right down and let me tell you
What my love is to me.

"Candy"
I call my sugar "Candy"
Because I'm sweet on "Candy"
And "Candy" is sweet on me

He/She understands me,
My understanding "Candy"
And "Candy"'s always handy
When I need sympathy
I wish that there were four of him/her
So I could love much more of him/her

He/She has taken my complete heart,
Got a sweet tooth for my sweetheart
"Candy"
Its gonna be just dandy
The day I take my "Candy"
And make him mine all mine
Mine

When I Fall In Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing
(originally by Doris Day)

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

[Instrumental]

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I'll fall in love with you

Stardust Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain

Stay As Sweet As You Are Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

Stay as sweet as you are,
Don't let a thing
Ever change you.
Stay as sweet as you are,
Don't let a soul
Rearrange you.

Don't ever lose
All the charm you possess,
Your loveliness, darling,
The way you say "yes".

Stay as sweet as you are
Discreet as you are,
You're divine, dear.
Stay as grand as you are,
And as you are,
Tell me that you're mine, dear.

Young and gay or old and gray,
Near to me or afar,
Night and day I pray
That you'll always stay
As sweet as you are.

[Interlude]

Young and gay or old and gray,
Near to me or afar,
Night and day I pray
That you'll always stay
As sweet as you are.

Where Can I Go Without You? Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

I went to Londontown
To clear up my mind,
Then on to Paris
For the fun I couldn't find.
I found I couldn't leave my memories behind.
Where can I go without you?

Tried seeing Singapore,
But that wouldn't do.
Went to Vienna,
But I found you there, too.
Even in Switzerland, your memory came through.
Where can I go without you?

I wanted travel, I wanted romance,
I chased that rainbow across the sea.
I'm tired of faces, and quaint old places
If you can't be there with me.

Back on the boat again
And farewell to France,
Farewell to Londontown,
They haven't a chance.
I'll trade the sights I've seen
For just one loving glance.
Where can I go without you?

I'm tired of faces, and quaint old places
If you can't be there with me.

Back on the boat again
And farewell to France,
Farewell to Londontown,
They haven't a chance.
I'll trade the sights I've seen
For just one loving glance.
Where can I go without you?

Maybe it's because I love you too much
Maybe that is why you love me so little

Maybe when I answered, yes
Maybe I became a bore
Maybe if I loved you less
Maybe you would love me more
Maybe it's because I've kissed you too much
Maybe that is why my kiss means so little

Maybe with a love so great and a love so small
Then, maybe I'll be left with no love at all

Love Letters Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

The sky may be starless
The night may be moonless
But deep in my heart
I know that you love me
You love me, because you told me so

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while we`re apart
I`m not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
I kiss the name that you sign
And darling, then I read again
Right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

I memorize every line
I kiss the name that you sign
And darling, then I read again
Right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

Ain't Misbehavin' Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE

No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

The one I love
Ain't Misbehavin'

I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you
Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care
Your kisses
Are worth waiting for
Believe me
I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my-y love for you
Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care
Your kisses
Are worth waiting for
Believe me-ee

Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm saving my love for you

At Last Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

I was never spellbound by a starry sky
What is there to moon glow, when love has passed you by
Then there came a midnight and the world was new
Now here am I so spellbound, darling
Not by stars, but just by you

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song
At Last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known
You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known
You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven

It's All In The Game Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

Many a tear has to fall
But its all in the game
All in the wonderful game
That we know as love
You have words with him
And your futures looking dim
But these things your heart can rise above
Once in a while he wont call
But its all in the game
Soon hell be there at your side
With a sweet bouquet
And hell kiss your lips
And caress your waiting fingertips
And your heart will fly away
[Repeat]

When Sunny Gets Blue Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

When Sunny gets blue, her eyes get gray and cloudy
Then the rain begins to fall, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Love is gone, what can matter
No sweet lover man comes to call

When Sunny gets blue, she breaths a sigh of sadness
Like the wind that stirs the trees
Wind that sets the leaves to swaying
Like some violin is playing strange and haunting melodies

People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile
That's how she got her name
Since that sad affair, she lost her smile, changed her style
Somehow she's not the same

But memories will fade and pretty dreams will rise up
Where her other dreams fell through
Hurry new love, hurry here, to kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near when Sunny gets blue

People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile
That's how she got her name
Since that sad affair, she lost her smile, changed her style
Somehow she's not the same

Hurry new love, hurry here, to kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near when Sunny gets blue

Love Is The Thing Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Love Is The Thing

Love is the thing

What does it matther if we're rich
Or we are poor?
Fortune and fame they never endure

Oh love is the thing, love is the thing!

What good is money if your heart is all right?
Here in your arms I'm wealthy tonight
For youth has its flame

Love is the thing!

While others fight for power
We can walk among the flowers
Knowing that the best thing in life
Is a thing that is free
Love for you and me
And even though our castles crumb and fall
We have the right to laugh at them all
For love is still keen

Love is the thing!

September Song Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Oh, it's a long, long while
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September
When the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time
For the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days
I'll spend with you
These precious days
I'll spend with you

Pick Yourself Up Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Pick yourself up...
Take a deep breath...
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.

Nothing's impossible, I have found
For when my chin is on the ground.
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off
And start all over again.

Don't lose your confidence
If you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.

Work like a soul inspired
Until the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son.

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again
They picked themselves up
Dust themselves off
And start'd all over again.

[Interlude]

Work like a soul inspired
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son.

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath...
Pick yourself up...
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.

Let There Be Love Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Let there be you,
Let there be me.
Let there be oysters
Under the sea.

Let there be wind,
An occasional rain.
Chile con carne,
Sparkling champagne

Let there be birds
To sing in the trees,
Someone to bless me
Whenever I sneeze.

Let there be cuckoos,
A lark and a dove,
But first of all, please
Let there be love.

[Interlude]

Let there be cuckoos,
A lark and a dove,
But first of all, please
Let there be love...

Hmmm umm...love
Hmmm umm...love

Let there be love.

Azure-Te Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Gone and got the blues in Paris,
Paris blues called Azure-te.
How can I be blue in Paris?
Easy, 'cause you're far away.
Can't lose this blues,
This Azure-te.

Moments, springtime, Eiffel Tower,
Funny taxes, kids at play.
Paris without you is lonesome,
Yearning more and more each day.
Can't lose this blues,
This Azure-te.

[Interlude]

If you knew how much I need you,
You'd come back to me to stay.
Having you with me in Paris
Really is the only way
To lose this blues,
This Azure-te.

Can't lose this blues,
This Azure-te.

Lost April Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Lost April,
Where did you go?
Like winter's snow,
I saw you vanish.
Lost April,
So soft and warm.
A memory
Not even time can banish.

Lost April,
That taught me this.
A single kiss
Could lead to heaven.
But April had numbered days,
So when they passed,
Love couldn't last.
I lost love and you,
And April, too.

[Interlude]

So when they passed,
Love couldn't last.
I lost love and you,
And April, too.

A Beautiful Friendship Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

This is the end of a beautiful friendship,
It ended a moment ago.
This is the end of a beautiful friendship,
I know,
'Cause your eyes told me so.

We've always been
Like sister and brother,
Until tonight,
When we looked at each other.

That was the end of a beautiful friendship,
And just the beginning of love.

[Interlude]

That was the end of a beautiful friendship,
And just the beginning of love!

Oh it's often use many words to say a simple thing
It takes thought and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing
With music and words I've been playing

For you I have written this song
To be sure you known what I'm saying
I'll translate as I go along

Fly me to the moon,
And let me play among the stars.
Let me see what spring is like,
On jupiter and mars.
In other words, hold my hand,
In other words, darling kiss me.

Fill my heart with song,
And let me sing forever more,
You are all I long for,
All I worship and adore,
In other words, please be true,
In other words, I love you.

Fill my heart with song,
And let me sing forever more,
You are all I long for,
All I worship and adore,
In other words, please be true,
In other words, I love you.

Serenata Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Tonight while all the world is still
Fly sweet song over the highest hill
Go to my loved one, Serenata for me
Sing him my song, love's melody

Tonight, when we are so far apart
Bring him back, back to my lonely heart
Go to my loved one Serenata and say
When you're in love, love finds a way

Go to my loved one Serenata for me
Sing him my song, love's melody

Go to my loved one, Serenata and say
When you're in love, love finds a way
Love finds a way, love finds a way
Love finds a way

There's A Lull In My Life Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

Oh...there's a lull in my life.
It's just a void, an empty space,
When you are not in my embrace.

Oh...there's a lull in my life.
The moment that you go away,
There is no night, there is no day.

The clock stops ticking,
The world stops turning.
Everything stops
But that flame in my heart
That keeps burning...burning...

Oh...there's a lull in my life.
No matter I may pretend,
I know that you alone can end
The ache in my heart,
The call of my arms...
The lull in my life.

Don't Go Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf, ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain, the one I love
I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go nowhere, what do I care
Your kisses are worth waiting for
Believe me

I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my-y love for you

Like Jack Horner in the corner
Don't go nowhere, what do I care
Your kisses are worth waiting for
Believe me

I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio, ain't misbehavin'
I'm saving my love for you

Everything Happens To Me Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Nat King Cole Sings / George Shearing Plays

I make a date for golf, you can bet you life it rains
I try to give a party and the guy upstairs complains
I guess, I'll go through life just catchin' colds and missin' trains
Everything happens to me

I never miss a thing, I've had measles and the mumps
And every time I play my ace, my partner always trumps
I guess, I'm just a fool, who never looks before he jumps
Everything happens to me

At first, my heart thought, you could break this jinx for me
That love would turn the trick to end my despair
But now, I just can't fool this head that thinks for me
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air

I've telegraphed and called, I sent, air mail special too
You answer was goodbye and there was even postage due
I fell in love just once and then it had to be with you
Everything happens to me

Why Should I Cry Over You? Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

[Brackets indicate choir in background]

(I don't why I should cry over you?)
Sigh over you? Even be blue?
I should have known that you'd leave me alone
And break my heart in two

Although you have left me alone to pine
And all of my love was a waste of time
Someday your heart will be broken like mine
So why should I cry over you?

(Although you have left me alone to pine)
And all of my love was a waste of time
Someday your heart will be broken like mine
So why should I cry over you?

Near You Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

There's just one place for me
Near you
It's like heaven to be
Near you

Times when we're apart
I can't face my heart
Say you'll never stray
More than just two lips away

If my hours could be spent
Near you
I'd be more than content
Near you
Make my life worthwhile
By telling me that I'll
Spend the rest of my days
Near you [x2]

I'll spend the rest of my days
Near you
Spend the rest of my days
Near you (and fade)

All Over The World Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

All over the world
All over the world

Love is the thing
It's the one thing, you'll see
All that it takes
Is a he and a she

All over the world
All over the world

Love was and love is
And always will be
All over the world

(Whether you're in
Maine or California
Doesn't matter, I know
You can be in Tennessee or
You can be in old Mexico)

(It can happen
Summer, spring or fall or
When the winter winds blow
Love is a wonderful thing)

Lovers can be found
In foggy London town
In Rome or Peru

Even in Damascus
Lovers never ask us
What they should do

You don't have to park
In Paris after dark
To know that it's true
Love is a wonderful thing

All over the world
All over the world

Love was and love is
And always will be
All over the world
All over the world

Oh, how I miss you tonight
Miss you when the lights are low
Oh, how I need you tonight
More then you'll ever know
Each moment that we're apart

I'd rather be lonely
And wait for you only

Sweetheart
How I miss you tonight
Oh, how I miss you tonight
Miss you when the lights are low
Oh, how I need you tonight
More then you'll ever know
Each moment that we're apart
You're never out of my heart
I'd rather be lonely
And wait for you only

How I miss you tonight
Each moment that we're apart
You're never out of my heart
I'd rather be lonely
And wait for you only

Sweetheart
How I miss you tonight

All By Myself Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

I'm so unhappy
What'll I do?
I long for somebody who
Will sympathize with me
I'm growing so tired of living alone
I lie awake all night and cry
Nobody loves me
That's why

All by myself in the morning
All by myself in the night

I sit alone with a table and a chair
So unhappy there
Playing solitaire

All by myself I get lonely
Watching the clock on the shelf

I'd love to rest my weary head on somebody's shoulder
I hate to grow older
All by myself

Who's Next In Line? Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

You used me for a stepping stone
'Til something better came along.
Now you've moved along
And left me behind.
I wonder, darling,
Who's next in line?

You left a trail of broken hearts
Torn into a million parts.
How many more
Will crumble like mine?
I wonder, darling,
Who's next in line?

Who will the next fool be?
Who will you kiss,
Like you kissed me?
Who will be next
To look in your eyes,
And believe all your beautiful lies?

I know, my love, the day will come
You'll pay for all,
All the wrong you've done.
You'll meet someone
Who isn't so blind.
My darling, your heart
Is next in line.

My darling, your heart
Maybe next in line.

My darling, your heart
Is next in line.

[Repeat to fade]

It's a lonesome old town, when you're not around,
How I wish you'd come back to me.

I never knew how much I missed you, but now I can plainly see.
It's a lonesome old town, when you're not around,

I don't want to be hurt anymore
By a part-time love affair
And I don't want to cry like before
Why pretend, again, you care
Please don't coax me back into your arms
I've been fooled many times by-y your charms
I know if I kissed you
I might not resist you
I don't want to be hurt anymore
Please don't coax me back into your arms
I've been fooled many times by-y your charms
I know if I kissed you
I might not resist you
I don't want to be hurt anymore-ore

You're Crying On My Shoulder Lyrics

Oh, you're crying on my shoulder for somebody else
Crying while I'm sighing for you

Holding you is such a sweet sensation
But you don't want my love, you want my consolation

Though you smile for someone, you don't smile for me
I just share your tears when you're blue

You're crying on my shoulder for somebody else
While my heart is crying for you

You're crying on my shoulder for somebody else
While my heart is crying for you
While my heart is crying for you

Only Yesterday Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

Only yesterday I loved you
And you said that you loved me
Yesterday, I thought we both knew
That our love would always be

We planned our lives together, dear
Setting our hopes so high
You were my future, bright and clear
A rainbow that filled my sky

And only yesterday I loved you
But today it's plain to see
When you said you loved forever
No, you didn't mean just me

And only yesterday I loved you
But today it's plain to see
When you said you loved forever
No, you didn't mean just me

No, you didn't mean just me

Yesterday's sunshine has turned into rain
I'm alone because I love you
Love you with all my heart

I'm alone because I love you
Love you with all my heart

Don't You Remember? Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

Remember, remember

Don't you remember when I met you?
(Remember)
Didn't the moon look big that night?
(Remember)
Didn't you say my arms felt right about you?
(Remember)

Don't you remember how I kissed you?
(Remember)
Didn't you snuggle close to me?
(Remember)
Didn't you say, "I'd never be without you"?
(Remember)

Now your love's grown as cold as December
And my blue skies have all turned to gray
In my heart, I will always remember
All the love that we knew yesterday

Don't you remember what you promised?
(Remember)
Didn't we set a wedding day?
(Remember)
Didn't you say you would wait?
Don't you remember?
(Stop, stop, stop pretending)

Don't you remember, it was springtime?
How all the roses were in bloom
You had my picture upside down
Remember

And then there was the time
That we made our plans about the future
We said we'd really settle down
We'd build a house outside of town
Remember

Now your love's grown as cold as December
(So cold)
And my blue skies have all turned to gray
(So gray)
In my heart, I will always remember
All the love that we knew yesterday
(Don't you remember?)

Don't you remember what you promised?
(Remember)
Didn't we set a wedding day?
(Remember)
Didn't you say you would wait?
Don't you remember?
(Stop pretending, I remember)
Remember

You're My Everything Lyrics

Artist : NAT KING COLE
Album : Dear Lonely Hearts / I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore

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're a way beyond belief
And just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring
My everything

You're my everything
Everything I need
You're the song I sing
And the book I read

You're a way beyond belief
And just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring
My everything
