– Autumn Leaves –
Originally "Les Feuilles Mortes" by Jacques Prévert, 1945, English lyrics by Johnny Mercer, 1947, music by Joseph Kosma, classic bilingual version 1950 by Piaf

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

C'est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m'aimais et je t'aimais
Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble
Toi qui m'aimais, moi qui t'aimais

Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s'aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
Les pas des amants désunis
– The Girl from Ipanema –
music by Antonio Carlos Jobim
English lyrics by Norman Gimbel
Portuguese lyrics by Vinícius de Moraes, 1962

Tall and tan and young and lovely,
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes, “Ahhh…”

When she walks, it’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gently
That when she passes, each one she passes goes, “Ahhh…”

Oh, but he watches so sadly -
How can he tell her he loves her?
Yes, he would give his heart gladly,
But each day when she walks to the sea,
She looks straight ahead – not at he…

Tall and tan and young and lovely,
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, he smiles,
but she doesn’t see…

{Repeat bridge and last verse, adding:}
She just doesn’t see…
No, she doesn’t see…
She just doesn’t see…
– Moondance –
by Van Morrison, 1970

Well it's a marvellous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
to the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
You know the night's magic
Seems to whisper & hush
And all the soft moonlight
Seems to shine in your blush....

Can I just have one more moondance
With you, my love?
Can I just make some more romance
With you, my love?

Well I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait till the morning has come
And I know now the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true dear
There and then I will make you my own
And everytime I touch you
You just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me
That, you can't hide....

{Chorus then repeat 1st verse + chorus x2}
