Lyrics: Sentimental Journey (1970)

 

Sentimental journey
by bud green, les brown and ben homer

gonna take a sentimental journey,
gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a sentimental journey,
to renew old memories.

I've got my bag and got my reservation,
spent each dime i could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
long to hear that "all aboard!"Seven, (seven)
that's the time we leave,
at seven. (seven)
i'll be waiting out for heaven, (heaven)
counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
that takes me back.

Never thought my heart could be so yearning,
why did i decide to roam?
Got to take this sentimental journey,
sentimental journey home.I said at seven,
that's the time we leave,
at seven.
I'll be waiting out for heaven,
counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
that takes me back.
I never thought my heart could be so yearning,
why did i decide to roam?

Got to take this sentimental journey,
sentimental journey home.
Sentimental journey home, let's go now,.
Sentimental journey home,
sentimental journey home,
sentimental journey home,
sentimental journey home.

Maybe i'd better go by plane!

Night and day
by cole porter

night and day, you are the one,
only you beneath the moon and under the sun.
Whether near to me or far,
it's no matter, darling, where you are, i think of you,
night and day.

Day and night, why is 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, oh, such a hungry yearning
burning inside of me.
And its torment won't be through
till you let me spend my life making love to you,
day and night, night and day.

And its torment won't be through
till you let me spend my life making love to you,
day and night, night and day.
Day and night, night and day.

Whispering grass (don't tell the trees)
by fred fisher and doris fisher

why do you whisper, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know,
no, no.

Why tell them all your secrets?
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know.
Don't you tell it to the breeze
'cause they will tell the birds and bees
and ev'ryone will know
because you told the blabbering trees.

Yes, you told them once before,
it's no secret any more.
Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'cause the trees don't need to know.

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'cause the trees don't need to know.

Bye bye blackbird
by mort dixon and ray henderson

pack up all my cares and woes,
here i go, singing low,
bye, bye, blackbird.

Where somebody waits for me,
sugar is sweet, so is she,
bye, bye, blackbird.
No one here can love and understand me,
oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.
Make my bed and light the light,
i'll arrive late tonight,

blackbird, bye, bye.Pack up all my cares and woes,
here i go, singing low,
bye, bye, blackbird.Where somebody waits for me,
sugar is sweet, so is she,
bye, bye, bye, bye, blackbird.

I said, no one here can love and understand me,
oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.
So, make my bed and light the light,
i'll arrive late tonight,
blackbird, bye, bye.

Make my bed and light the light,
i'll arrive late tonight,
blackbird,
i said blackbird,
i said blackbird,
oh, blackbird, bye, bye.

I'm a fool to care
by ted daffan

i'm a fool to care,
when you treat me this way.
I know i love you,
but what can i do?
I'm a fool to care.

I'm a fool to cry,
when you tell me goodbye.
You left me so blue,
when you were untrue,
i'm a fool to care.I know i should laugh
and call it a day.
But i know i would cry
if you went away.I'm a fool to care,
when you don't care for me.
So why should i pretend,
i lose in the end,
i'm a fool to care.Brrr!

I'm a fool to care,
when you treat me this way.
I know i love you,
but what can i do?
I'm a fool to care.

Stardust
by hoagy carmichael and mitchell parish

sometimes i wonder why i spend the lonely nights
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 where stars are bright,
you are in my arms.
The nightingale tells his fairytale
of paradise where roses grew.
Though i dream in vain,
in my heart it will remain,
my stardust melody,
the memory of loves refrain.Aaahhh, hit me!

The nightingale tells his fairytale
of paradise where roses grew.
Though i dream in vain,
in my heart it will remain,
my stardust melody,
the memory of loves refrain.

Blue, turning grey over you
by andy razof and thomas "fats" waller

what will i do at sundown,
what will i do at dawn,
what will i do at noontime,
now that i've found you gone?

What will i do for sunshine
with nothing but the rain?
How can i smile, find life worth while
with a heart that's filled with pain?
My, how i miss your tender kiss
and the wonderful things you would do.
I run my hands thru' sil'vry strands
'cause i'm blue, turning grey over you.
Well, you used to be so good to me,
that's when i was a novelty.
Now you have new thrills in view,
found someone new,
left me blue, turning grey over you.
I said, how can i smile,
find life worth while
with a heart that's filled with pain?You used to be
so good to me,
that's when i was a novelty.
Well, now you have found some new thrills to view,
and some new buddy friends and i don't know what to do.
Because i'm blue, turning grey over you.

Yeh, come on, hit me, daddy, hit me,
let me hear it one time!
Oh yeah,
ba-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-sa-so-so-so-so
ba-sa-sa-sa-sa-dootsie-dootise-doo.

I just lost myself there, child, ha! Ha! Ha!

Love is a many splendoured thing
by paul francis webster and sammy fain

love is a many splendoured thing,
it's the april rose that only grows
in the early spring.
Love is nature's way of giving
a reason to be living,
the golden crown that makes a man a king.

Once on a high and windy hill,
in the morning mist, two lovers kissed
and the world stood still.
Then your fingers touched my silent heart
and taught it how to sing,
yes, true love's a many splendoured thing.

Once on a high and windy hill,
in the morning mist, two lovers kissed
and the world stood still.
Then your fingers touched my silent heart
and taught it how to sing,
yes, true love's a many splendoured thing.

Dream
by johnny mercer

dream, when you're feeling blue,
dream, that's the thing to do.
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air,
you'll find your share
of memories there.

So dream, when the night is through,
dream, and they might come true.
Things never are as bad as they seem,
so dream, dream, dream.Dream, when you're feeling blue,
dream, that's the thing to do.
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air,
you'll find your share
of memories there.

So dream, when the night is through,
dream, and they might come true.
Things never are as bad as they seem,
so dream, dream, dream.

You always hurt the one you love
by allan roberts and doris fisher

uh - doo-doo-doo
uh - doo-doo-doo

You always hurt the one you love,
the one you shouldn't hurt at all.
You always take the sweetest rose
and crush it until the petals fall.
You always break the kindest heart
with a hasty word you can't recall.
So if i broke your heart last night
it's because i love you most of all.
You always break the kindest heart
with a hasty word you can't recall.
So if i broke your heart last night
it's because i love you most of all.
It's because i love you most of all.

Have i told you lately that i love you
by scott wiseman

have i told you lately that i love you?
Could i tell you once again somehow?
Have i told with all my heart and soul how i adore you?
Darling, i'm telling you now.

This heart would break in two if you refuse me,
i'm no good without you anyhow.
Dear, have i told you lately that i love you?
Well, darling, i'm telling you now.Have i told you lately that i miss you
when the stars are shining in the sky?
Have i told you why the nights are long when you're not near me?
Darling, i'm telling you now.This heart would break in two if you refuse me,
i'm no good without you anyhow.
Dear, have i told you lately that i love you?
Well, darling, i'm telling you now.

This heart would break, would break in two if you refuse me,
i'm no good without you anyhow.
Dear, have i told you lately that i love you?
Well, darling, i'm telling you now.

Let the rest of the world go by
by j. Keirn brennan and ernest r. Ball

with someone like you,
a pal so good and true,
i'd like to leave it all behind and go and find
some place that's known to god alone,
just a spot to call our own.

We'll find perfect peace
where joys never cease
out there beneath the kindly sky.
We'll build a sweet little nest,
somewhere in the west
and let the rest of the world go by.
