– With a Song in My Heart –
m Richard Rodgers, w Lorenz Hart,
from the 1929 musical Spring is Here.

Though I know that we meet ev'ry night
and we couldn't have changed since the last time,
to my joy and delight,
it's a new kind of love at first sight.
Though it's you and it's I all the time
ev'ry meeting's a marvelous pastime.
You're increasingly sweet,
so whenever we happen to meet,  
I  greet  you ...

With a song in my heart
I behold your adorable face.
Just a song at the start
but it soon is a hymn to your grace.
When the music swells
I'm touching your hand
It tells that your're standing near,       and ..
At the sound of your voice
heaven opens its portals to me.
Can I help but rejoice
that a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew I would live life through
with a song in my heart for you.

Oh, the moon's not a moon for a night
and these stars will not twinkle and fade out,
and the words in my ears
will resound for the rest of my years.
In the morning I find with delight
not a note of our music is played out.
It will be just as sweet,
and an air that I'll live to repeat:   I  greet  you ... 
–  Young at Heart –
m Johnny Richards, w Carolyn Leigh, 1953

Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
If you're young at heart
For it's hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind
If you're young at heart

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on its way

Don't you know that it's worth every treasure on Earth
To be young at heart
For as rich as you are it's much better by far
To be young at heart

And if you should survive to 105
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive
And here is the best part
You have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart

[Repeat from "Don't you know," stringing out last line thusly:]
If you are among the very young     at     heart

That Old Feeling
m Sammy Fain, w Lew Brown, 1937

I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight, I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still
– Do Nothing Till You Hear from Me –
m by Duke Ellington (1940),
w by Bob Russell addded later

Do nothing till you hear from me,
Pay no attention to what's said.
Why people tear the seams
of anyone's dreams
Is over my head.

Do nothing till you hear from me,
At least consider our romance.
If you should take the words
of others you've heard,
I haven't a chance.

True, I've been seen with someone new,
But does that mean that I've been untrue?
When we're apart,
The words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you.

Some kiss may cloud my memories,
And other arms may hold a thrill,
But please, do nothing till
you hear it from me
And you never will.
{Repeat from Bridge}

 < > < > < > < > < > < > < >

Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
And I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart
{repeat second verse}
