I'm not the guy who cared about love And I'm not the guy who cared about fortunes and such I never cared much Oh, look at me now! I never knew the technique of kissing I never knew the thrill I could get from your touch I never knew much Oh, look at me now! I'm a new man better than casanova at his best With a new heart and a brand new start Why I'm so proud I'm bustin' my vest So I'm the guy who turned out a lover Yes I'm the guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings One of those things Oh, look at me now! I'm not the guy who cared about love And I'm not the guy who cared about fortunes and such I never cared much Oh, look at me now! And I never knew the technique of kissing I never knew the thrill I could get form your touch I never knew much Oh, look at me now! I'm a new man better than casanova at his very best With a new heart and a brand new start I'm so proud I'm bustin' my vest So I'm the guy who turned out a lover Yes I'm the guy who laughed at those blue diamond rings One of those things Oh, look at me now! Look at me now!

What good is the scheming The planning and dreaming That come with each new love affair The dreams that you cherish So often may perish And leave you with castles in air When you're alone, who cares for starlit skies When you're alone, the magic moonlight dies At break of dawn, there is no sunrise When your lover has gone What lonely hours, the evening shadows bring What lonely hours, with memories lingering Like faded flowers, life can't mean anything When your lover has gone

Candy 03:57
Candy, I call my sugar Candy Because I'm sweet on Candy And Candy's sweet on me She understands me My understanding Candy And Candy's always handy When I need sympathy I wish that there were four of her So I could love much more of her She has taken my complete heart Got a sweet tooth for my sweetheart Candy, it's gonna be just dandy The day I take my Candy And make her mine, all mine

My story is much to sad to be told But practically everything leaves me totally cold The only exception I know is the case When I'm out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui Then I suddenly turn and see Your fabulous face I get no kick from champagne Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all So tell me why should it be true? That I get a Kick! Out of you I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me I get a kick though it's clear to see, you obviously do not adore me I get no kick in a plane Flying too high with some gal in the sky Is my idea of nothing to do But I Get A Kick Out Of You

Marie 03:52
Marie comes into my mind like a song And then I find she is gone Marie. It was not to be But you see in my memory She lives on She would do anything for me If I'm lucky someday I will see Her coming back to me Marie never was my own Though she's flown I am not alone She's in me

Holding hands at midnight 'Neath a starry sky Nice work if you can get it And you can get it if you try Strolling with the one girl Sighing sigh after sigh Nice work if you can get it And you can get it if you try Just imagine someone Waiting at the cottage door Where two hearts become one Who could ask for anything more? Loving one who loves you And then taking that vow It's nice work if you can get it And if you get it, won't you tell me how?

Ain't No Use 04:53
There ain't no use In hanging 'round No, there ain't no use I'm gonna put you down There's no room left in my heart For you Ain't no use For you to cry Ain't no use This is goodbye You done me wrong So many times Now I'm through The best years of my life You just wasted away You caused so many tears Now the time has come when you must pay Ain't no more for you say Ain't no more for you to say Just take your love and go away And it's time We can leave Don't return Baby, it ain't no use If you leave, don't return 'Cause it just ain't no use

Somebody loves me, I wonder who, I wonder who she can be. Somebody loves me, I wish I knew, Who can she be worries me. For every girl who passes me I shout, " Hey, maybe You were meant to be my loving baby. " Somebody loves me, I wonder who, Maybe it's you.
9.
I've just found joy I'm as happy as a baby boy With another brand new choo-choo choy When I met my sweet Lorraine, Lorraine, Lorraine She's got 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 And to think that I'm the lucky one That will lead her down the aisle 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
10.
You see a pair of laughing eyes And suddenly your sighing sighs You're thinking nothing's wrong You string along, boy, then snap! Those eyes, those sighs, they're part of the tender trap You're hand in hand beneath the trees And soon there's music in the breeze You're acting kind of smart, until your heart just goes wap! Those trees, that breeze, they're part of the tender trap Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single And all at once it seems so nice The folks are throwing shoes and rice You hurry to a spot, that's just a dot on the map You're hooked, you're cooked, you're caught in the tender trap Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single And all at once it seems so nice The folks are throwing shoes and rice You hurry to a spot that's just a dot on the map And then you wonder how it all came about It's too late now there's no gettin' out You fell in love, and love is the tender trap
11.
There are many many crazy things That will keep me loving you And with your permission May I list a few The way you wear your hat The way you sip your tea The memory of all that No they can't take that away from me The way your smile just beams The way you sing off key The way you haunt my dreams No they can't take that away from me We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love But I'll always, always keep the memory of The way you hold your knife The way we danced till three The way you changed my life No they can't take that away from me
