CHICAGO

Words and Music by Fred Fisher


CHICAGO, CHICAGO, that toddlin' town

CHICAGO, CHICAGO, I'll show you around (You'll stay around)

Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in

CHICAGO, CHICAGO, the folks who visit

All wanna settle down. (All wanna settle down in my hometown)


On State Street, that great street, I just wanna say,

They do things they don't do on Broadway,

You'll have the time, the time of your life

Bring all your friends, all your kids and your wife to

CHICAGO, CHICAGO my hometown. (Hey now baby--)

(Oooh baby)

You'll have the time, the time of your life

Bring all your friends, all your kids and your wife to

CHICAGO, CHICAGO my hometown.

Oh, to CHICAGO, CHICAGO my hometown (yeah)


CARAVAN

Music by Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol

Words by Irving Mills


Night and stars above that shine so bright

The mystery of their fading light

That shines upon our CARAVAN.


Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep

Across the sands so I may keep

The mem'ry of our CARAVAN.


This is so exciting, you are so inviting

Resting in my arms

Thrill to the magic, the magic of your charms


You beside me here beneath the blue

My dream of love is coming true

Within our desert CARAVAN.


This is so exciting, you are so inviting

Resting in my arms

Thrill to the magic, the magic of your charms


Night and stars above that shine so bright

The mystery of their fading light

That shines upon our CARAVAN.


DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME

Music by Wilber Schwandt and Fabian Andre

Words by Gus Kahn


Stars shining bright above you,

Night breezes seem to whisper, "I love you",

Birds singing in the sycamore tree,

"Dream A Little Dream Of Me".


Just say "goodnight" and kiss me,

Oh, hold me tight and tell me you miss me;

While I'm alone and blue as can be,

Dream A Little Dream Of Me.


Stars fading, but I linger on, dear,

Still craving your kiss;

I'm longing to linger till dawn, my dear,

Just saying this:


Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you,

Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you,

But in your dreams whatever they be,

Dream A Little Dream Of Me.


Say "nightie-night" and kiss me,

Oh, hold me tight and tell me you miss me;

While I'm alone and blue as can be,

Dream A Little Dream Of Me.


Dream A little dream of you and me.


GOODY GOODY

Words and Music by Johnny Mercer and Matt Malneck

(Additional Words by Chicago)


(Hey, got yourself a good thing, it's a good thing

It's a good thing, got yourself a good thing

I won't let you go.)


So you met someone who set you back on your heels,

Goody Goody!

So you met someone and now you know how it feels,

Goody Goody!

So you gave him your heart too, just as I gave mine to you.

And he broke it in little pieces, now how do you do?


So you lie awake just singin' the blues all night,

Goody Goody!

So you think that love's a barrel of dynamite.

Hooray and hallelujah!

You had it comin' to ya.

Goody Goody for him, Goody Goody for me,

And I hope you're satisfied, you rascal you.


(Good thing, got yourself a good thing

It's a good thing, got yourself a good thing

I won't let you go.)


So you met someone who set you back on your heels,

Goody Goody!

So you met somebody and now you know how it feels,

Goody Goody!

So you gave him your heart too just as I gave mine to you.

And he stuck it in his collection, section ninety-two.


So you lie awake just singin' the blues all night,

So you think that love's a barrel of dynamite.

Hooray and hallelujah!

You had it comin' to ya.

Goody Goody for him, Goody Goody for me,

And I hope you're satisfied, you rascal you.


MOONLIGHT SERENADE

Music by Glenn Miller

Words by Mitchell Parish


Stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming,

My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?

I bring you and sing you

A Moonlight Serenade.


Let us stray till break of day

In love's valley of dreams,

You and I, a summer sky,

A heavenly breeze kisses the trees.


So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June light.

I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,

A love song, my darling,

A Moonlight Serenade.


We can stay till break of day

In love's valley of dreams,

You and I, a summer sky,

A heavenly breeze kisses the trees.


So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June light.

I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,

A love song, my darling,

A Moonlight Serenade.


NIGHT AND DAY

Music and Words by Cole Porter


(Portuguese groove)

Night And Day, you are the one;

Only you beneath the moon, under the sun.

Whether near to me or far,

It's no matter darlin', where you are;

I think of you, Night And Day.


Night And Day, why's it so,

That this longing for you, follows wherever I go.

In the roaring traffic's boom;

In the silence of my lonely room;

I think of you, Night And Day.


Night and Day, under the hide of me,

There's an old, such a hungry yearning, burning inside of me;

And this torment won't be through,

Till you let me spend my life making love to you;

Day and Night, Night and Day


BLUES IN THE NIGHT

Music by Harold Arlen

Words by Johnny Mercer


My mama done told me when I was in knee-pants,

My mama done told me, she said Son!

A woman will sweet-talk ya, she'll give you the big eye,

But when that sweet talkin' is done

A woman's a two-face, a worrisome thing

Who'll leave ya to sing the Blues In The Night.


Now the rain's a fallin', hear the train a callin', whoo-ee,

Hear the lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, whoo-ee,

Whoo-ee-a-whoo-ee, ol' clickety-clack

I'm back on the track of Blues In The Night


The evening breeze will start the trees to cryin'

And the moonlight'll hide its light,

When you get the Blues In The Night.


Take my word, the mockingbird

He will sing the saddest kind of song,

He knows things are wrong and he's right.

From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to St. Joe,

Wherever the four winds seem to blow,

I've been in some big towns and I've heard me some big talkin',

But there is one thing I know,

A woman's a two-face, she's a worrisome thing

Who'll leave you to sing the Blues In The Night.


(Got a case of the Blues In The Night, don't know what to do

Blues every night...)


SING, SING, SING

Music and Words by Louis Prima


Sing, sing, sing, sing

Everybody's got to sing

Stick with us we'll have a ball.


Sing, sing, sing, sing

Everybody's got to sing

Stick around we'll have it all.


Music brightens up the day

Now, if you like it we will stay.


Sing, sing, sing, sing

Everybody's got to sing

Stick around, shake it down.


(Spanish lyrics)


SOPHISTICATED LADY

Music by Duke Ellington

Words by Irving Mills and Mitchell Parish


They say into your early life romance came,

And in this heart of yours burned a flame,

A flame that flickered one day and died away,


Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes,

You learned that fools in love soon grow wise,

The years have changed you, somehow;

I see you now...


Smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow,

Nonchalant, diamonds shining, dancing, dining

With some man in a restaurant

Is that all you really want?


No, Sophisticated Lady, I know,

You miss the love you lost long ago,

And when nobody is nigh you cry.


Is that all you really want?

No, Sophisticated Lady, I know,

You miss the heart you lost long ago,

And when nobody is nigh you cry.


IN THE MOOD

Music by Joe Garland

Words by Chicago


Always been the kind of girl to hold it back,

When you know that you want to;

Someone always had to tell you where it's at;

Now you know that you want to.


Somethin' in the music's gonna make you move.

Now you know that you want to;

The rhythm's gonna put the woman In The Mood,

Now you definitely want to.


In The Mood, In The Mood,

In the groove, In The Mood;

You've got yourselves an attitude.


In The Mood, In The Mood,

In the groove, In The Mood;

You've got yourself an attitude.


DON'T GET AROUND MUCH ANYMORE

Music by Duke Ellington

Words by Bob Russell


Missed the Saturday dance

Heard they crowded the floor

Couldn't bear it without you

Don't Get Around Much Anymore.


Thought I'd visit the club

Got as far as the door

They'd have asked me about you Don't Get Around Much Anymore.


Oh, darling I guess

My mind's more at ease

But nevertheless

Why stir up memories.


Been invited on dates

Might have gone but what for

It's awfully diff'rent without you

Don't Get Around Much Anymore.


TAKE THE "A" TRAIN

Music and Words by Billy Strayhorn


Come on down, let's Take The "A" Train

To take a little ride around the city.

Brooklyn or Broadway train

You'll see that old New York is kind of pretty.


Take your baby subway ridin'

That's where romance may be hidin' (let's take a ride)

Take, you should Take The "A" Train

To get to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem.


Come on baby, climb aboard The "A" Train

That's the way to get to Sugar Hill in Harlem

And if you get aboard the "A" Train

You'll get to Sugar Hill and in a hurry.


Listen here, listen to the train a comin'

Hear the rails a hummin' (let's take a ride)

Climb aboard, climb aboard the "A" Train

To take a little ride around the city.


(All aboard...)
