Track Name: MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE I'M A LONDONER
London isn't everybody's cup of tea
Often you hear visitors complain
Noisy, smoky city but it seems to me
There's a magic in the fog and rain

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London so
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go
I get a funny feeling inside of me
Just walking up and down
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London so

People take to saying as the years go by
London isn't London anymore
People may be changing
But this town and I
We are even closer than before

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London so
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go
I get a funky feeling deep inside of me
Just walking up and down
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London so
Don't you know that I love London Town
Oh, I love London so

Have a banana...
Salt fish!
Track Name: ROCKIN' CHAIR
Moonlight on Swanee's muddy shore
By my door
Music I've often heard before
Hear'd no more

Years have slipped away left me longing
For the days of happiness I'll see no more

Ol' rockin' chair's got me
Cane by my side
Fetch me that gin, son
'fore I tan your hide
Can't get from this cabin
Ain't goin' nowhere
Just sittin' here grabbin'
At the flies round this ol' rockin' chair

My dear ol' Aunt Harriet
Up in Heaven she be
Send down sweet chariot
For the end of these troubles I see

Ol' rockin' chair gets it
Judgement day is near
Chained to that ol' rockin' chair

Can't get from this cabin
Ain't goin' nowhere
Just sittin' here grabbin'
At the flies round this ol' rockin' chair

My dear ol' Aunt Harriet
Up in Heaven she be
Send down sweet chariot
For the end of these troubles I see

Ol' rockin' chair gets it
Judgement day is near
Chained to that ol' rockin' chair
Chained to that seat
Chained to that ol' rockin' chair
Years have slipped away
Left me longin' for the days of old
Track Name: I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE, BABY
MUSIC: JIMMY MCHUGH
WORDS: DOROTHY FIELDS

GEE BUT IT'S TOUGH TO BE BROKE, KID
IT'S NOT A JOKE, KID, IT'S A CURSE
MY LUCK IS CHANGING, IT'S GOTTEN
FROM SOMETHING ROTTEN
TO SOMETHING WORSE
WHO KNOWS SOME DAY I WILL WIN TOO
I'LL BEGIN TO REACH MY PRIME
NOW THOUGH I SEE WHAT OUR END IS
ALL I CAN SPEND IS JUST MY TIME

ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY, KID
YOU HAVE TO PAY, KID, FOR WHAT YOU GET
BUT I AM WILLING TO WAIT, DEAR
YOUR LITTLE MATE, DEAR, WILL NOT FORGET
YOU HAVE A LIFETIME BEFORE YOU
I'LL ADORE YOU, COME WHAT MAY
PLEASE DON'T BE BLUE FOR THE PRESENT
WHEN IT'S SO PLEASANT, TO HEAR YOU SAY

I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE, BABY
THAT'S THE ONLY THING I'VE PLENTY OF, BABY
DREAM AWHILE, SCHEME AWHILE, WE'RE SURE TO FIND
HAPPINESS, AND I GUESS, ALL THOSE THINGS YOU'VE ALWAYS PINED FOR
GEE, I'D LIKE TO SEE YOU LOOKING SWELL, BABY
DIAMOND BRACELETS WOOLWORTH DOESN'T SELL, BABY
TILL THAT LUCKY DAY, YOU KNOW DARNED WELL, BABY
I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE. I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE, BABY
THAT'S THE ONLY THING I'VE PLENTY OF, BABY!
DREAM AWHILE
YEAH
SCHEME AWHILE
YOU'RE SURE TO FIND
HAPPINESS AND I GUESS
ALL THOSE THINGS YOU'RE SURE TO PINE FOR
GEE, I'D LOVE TO SEE YOU LOOKING SWELL, BABY
DIAMOND BRACELETS WOOLWORTHS DOESN'T SELL, MY LITTLE BABY
TILL THAT LUCKY DAY, YOU KNOW DARN WELL OH, BABY!
THAT I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE
I CAN'T DISH OUT ANYTHING BUT LOVE, BABE
THAT'S THE ONLY THING I 'VE GOT PLENTY OF, BABY!
TALK ABOUT DREAMIN' AWHILE
SCHEMIN' AWHILE
YOU'RE SURE TO FIND
HAPPINESS, YEAH, AND ALL THOSE FINE ARABIAN THINGS YOUR LITTLE HEART PINES FOR, YEAH!

YOU KNOW DARN WELL, WELL, BABY
I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING BUT LOVE
Track Name: HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS
Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that may last

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
May your heart be light
In a year our troubles will be out of sight
From now on

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
In a year our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Precious friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

I know that
In a year we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then we'll just have to muddle through
Somehow
And have ourselves a merry little Christmas now

In a year we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star on the highest bough
And have ourselves a merry little Christmas now

If the fates allow
Precious friends gather near to us once more
Happy days oh, yeah!
We'll be together
And that's alright
Yeah!
