Tried and True -- the Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Can't Take My Eyes Off of You

(Bob Crewe/Bob Gaudio)

You're just too good to be true.

Can't take my eyes off you.

You'd be like Heaven to touch.

I wanna hold you so much.

At long last love has arrived

And I thank God I'm alive.

You're just too good to be true.

Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.

There's nothing else to compare.

The sight of you leaves me weak.

There are no words left to speak,

But if you feel like I feel,

Please let me know that it's real.

You're just too good to be true.

Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,

And if it's quite alright,

I need you, baby,

To warm a lonely night.

I love you, baby.

Trust in me when I say:

Oh, pretty baby,

Don't bring me down, I pray.

Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay

And let me love you, baby.

Let me love you.

You're just too good to be true.

Can't take my eyes off you.

You'd be like Heaven to touch.

I wanna hold you so much.

At long last love has arrived

And I thank God I'm alive.

You're just too good to be true.

Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,

And if it's quite alright,

I need you, baby,

To warm a lonely night.

I love you, baby.

Trust in me when I say:

Oh, pretty baby,

Don't bring me down, I pray.

Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay And let me love you, baby.

Let me love you, baby,Let me love you.

What Kind of Fool Am I?

(Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley)

What kind of fool am I, who never fell in love?

It seems that I'm the only one I have been thinking of.

What kind of life is this? An empty shell,

A lonely cell in which an empty heart must dwell?

What kind of lips are these That lied with every kiss?

That whispered empty words of love that left me alone like this?

Why can't I fall in love Like any other man?

And maybe then I'll know what kind of fool I am.

What kind of clown am I? What do I know of life?

Why can't I cast away this mask of clay and live my life?

Why can't I fall in love,Like any other man?

And maybe then I'll know what kind of fool I am.

It's Only Make Believe

(Conway Twitty/Jack Nance)

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you'll care.

My hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.

No one will ever know, how much I love you so.

My only prayer will be, some day you'll care for me,

But it's only make believe.

My hopes, my dreams come true, my life, I'd give for you.

My heart, a wedding ring, my all, my everything.

My heart I can't control; you rule my very soul.

My only prayer will be, some day you'll care for me,

But it's only make believe.

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you'll care.

My hopes and dreams come true, my one and only you.

No one will ever know, how much I love you so.

My prayer, my hope, my schemes, you are my every dream,

But it's only make believe.

No one will ever know, how much I love you so.

My prayers, my hope, my schemes, my everything

But it's only make, but it's only make believe.

Misty

(Johnny Burke/Erroll Garner)

Look at me,

I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree

And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud,

I can't understand,

I get misty, just holding your hand.

Walk my way,

And a thousand violins begin to play

Or it might be the sound of your hello

That music I hear,

I get misty the moment you're near

You can say that you're leading me on

But it's just what I want you to do

Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost

That's why I'm following you.

On my own,

Would I wander through this wonderland alone

Never knowing my right foot from my left,

My hat from my glove,

I'm too misty, and too much in love.

You can say that you're leading me on

But it's just what I want you to do

Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost

That's why I'm following you.

On my own,

Would I wander through this wonderland alone

Never knowing my right foot from my left,

My hat from my glove,

I'm too misty, and too much in love.

I'm too misty, and too much in love.

Mack the Knife

(Marc Blitzstein/Berthold Brecht/Kurt Weill)

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear

And he shows them pearly white

Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe

And he keeps it out of sight

When that shark bites with those teeth, dear

Scarlet billows start to spread

Fancy gloves, though wears old MacHeath, babe

So there's never, never a trace of red

On the sidewalk, some Sunday morning,

Lies a body just oozin' life,

Someone's sneakin' 'round the corner

Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

From a tugboat, down by the river goin' slow,

A cement bag is droppin' on down,

That cements there for the weight, dear

Five'll get ya ten old Mackie's back in town!

So Louie Miller? He disappeared, baby

After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash

And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor

Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

Jenny Diver, and Sukey Tawdry Look out Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown

Yes, the line forms on the right, babe

Now that Mackie's back in town.

I said Jenny Diver, oh, Sukey Tawdry

Look out Lotte Lenya, old Lucy Brown

You better lock your doors, and call the law babe,

Because Mackie's back in town!

It's Impossible

(Armando Manzanero/Sid Wayne)

It's impossible, tell the sun to leave the sky, it's just impossible

It's impossible, ask a baby not to cry, it's just impossible

Can I hold you closer to me and not feel you goin' through me?

Split the second that I never think of you?

Oh, how impossible

Can the ocean keep from rushin' to the shore? It's just impossible

If I had you, could I ever want for more? It's just impossible

And tomorrow, shouldya ask me for the world, somehow I'd get it

I would sell my very soul and not regret it

For to live without your love--It's just impossible

Can I hold you closer to me and not feel you goin' through me?

Split the second that I never think of you? Oh, how impossible

Can the ocean keep from rushin' to the shore? It's just impossible

If I had you, could I ever want for more? It's just impossible

And tomorrow, shouldya ask me for the world, somehow I'd get it

I would sell my very soul and not regret it

For to live without your love--It's just impossible

Impossible, impossible.

Unchained Melody

(Alex North/Hy Zaret)

Oh, my love

my darling

I've hungered for your touch

a long lonely time

And time goes by so slowly

and time can do so much

are you still mine?

I need your love

I need your love

Godspeed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea,

to the sea

to the open arms of the sea

Lonely rivers sigh "wait for me, wait for me"

I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh, my love

my darling

I've hungered for your touch

a long lonely time

And time goes by so slowly

and time can do so much

are you still mine?

I need your love

I need your love

Godspeed, Godspeed your love to me

I need your love

Godspeed, Godspeed your love to me.

Suspicious Minds

(Mark James)

We're caught in a trap

I can't walk out

Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see

What you're doing to me

When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together

With suspicious minds

And we can't build our dreams

On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know

Drops by to say hello

Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again

Asking where I've been

You can't see these tears are real

I'm crying

We can't go on together

With suspicious minds

And we can't build our dreams

On suspicious minds

Oh let our love survive

Or dry these tears from your eyes

Let's not let a good thing die

When you know

I've never lied to you

No, no.

We're caught in a trap

I can't walk out

Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see

What you're doing to me

When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together

With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)

And we can't build our dreams

On suspicious minds

(Repeat and fade)

Crying

(Joe Melson/Roy Orbison)

I was all right for a while

I could smile for a while

But I saw you last night

You held my hand so tight

As you stopped to say, "Hello"

You wished me well

You couldn't tell

That I'd been crying over you

Crying over you

When you said, "So long"

Left me standing all alone

Alone and crying, crying

Crying, crying

It's hard to understand

That the touch of your hand

Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you

But it's true, oh so true

I love you even more

Than I did before

But, darling, what can I do?

You don't love me

And I'll always be

Crying over you

Crying over you

Yes, now now that you're gone

And, from this moment on

I'll be crying, crying

Crying, crying

Crying, crying

You left me crying,

Crying, crying, crying

Crying, crying

Alone and crying

There's a Kind of Hush

(Les Reed/Geoff Stevens)

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight.

All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love.

Just the two of us and nobody else in sight.

There's nobody else and I'm feeling good just holding you tight.

So listen very carefully

Get closer now and you will see what I mean.

It isn't a dream.

The only sound that you will hear

Is when I whisper in your ear

I love you forever and ever.

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight.

All over the world people just like us are fallin' in love.

So listen very carefully

Get closer now and you will see what I mean.

It isn't a dream.

The only sound that you will hear

Is when I whisper in your ear

I love you forever and ever.

There's a kind of hush all over the world tonight.

All over the world people just like us are fallin' in love

All over the world people just like us are fallin' in love.

Moon River

(Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer)

Moon River, wider than a mile,

I'm crossing you in style some day.

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,

wherever you're going I'm going your way.

Two drifters off to see the world.

There's such a lot of world to see.

We're after the same rainbow's end,

waiting 'round the bend,

my huckleberry friend,

Moon River and me.

Moon River, wider than a mile,

I'm crossing you in style some day.

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,

wherever you're going I'm going your way.

Two drifters off to see the world.

There's such a lot of world to see.

We're after the same rainbow's end,

waiting 'round the bend,

my huckleberry friend,

Moon River and me.

Bonus tracks:

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me(

Giusepee Danaggio/Simon Napier-Bell/Vito Pallavicini/Vicki Heather Wickham)

When I said, I needed you,

You promised me you would always stay.

It wasn't me who changed, but you.

And now you've gone away.

Can't you see that now you've gone,

And I'm left here on my own,

And I have to follow you,

And beg you to come home?

You don't have to say you love me.

Just be close at hand.

You don't have to stay forever,

I will understand.

Believe me,

I can't help but love you.

But believe me,

I'll never tie you down.

Left alone with memories,

Life seems dead and so unreal.

All that's left is loneliness.

There's nothing left to feel.

Oh, you don't have to say you love me.

Just be close at hand.

You don't have to stay forever,

I will understand.

Believe me, I can't help but love you,

But believe me,I will never tie you down.

Oh, You don't have to say you love me.

Just be close at hand.

You don't have to stay forever,

I will understand.

Believe me, I can't help but love you,

But believe me,I will never tie you down.

I can't help but love you baby, no, no.

You don't have to say you love me, baby.

Who's Sorry Now

(Bert Kalmar/Harry Ruby/Ted Snyder)

Who's sorry now, who's sorry now

Whose heart is achin' for breakin' each vow

Who's sad and blue, who's cryin' too

Just like I cried over you.

Right to the end just like a friend

I tried to warn you somehow

You had your way, now you must pay

I'm glad that you're sorry now.

Right to the end just like a friend

I tried to warn you somehow

You had your way, now you must pay

I'm glad that you're sorry now.

I'm glad that you're sorry now.

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

(Howard Greenfield/Neil Sedaka)

You tell me that you're leavin',

I can't believe it's true.

Oh there's just no livin' without you.

Don't take your love away from me

Don't leave my heart in misery.

If you go then I'll be blue

Breaking up is hard to do.

Remember when you held me tight,

And you kissed me all through the night?

Think of all that we've been through.

Breaking up is hard to do.

They say that breaking up is hard to do.

Now I know I know that's true

Don't say that this is the end.

Instead of breaking up

I wish that we were making up again.

I beg of you, don't say goodbye.

Can't we give our love one more try?

C'mon baby, let's start anew.

Breaking up is hard to do.

Breaking up is hard to do.
