It's a grand night for singing
The moon is flying high
And smewhere a bird who is bound to be heard
Is throwing his heart at the sky.

It's a grand night for singing
The stars are bright above
The earth is aglow and to add to the show
I think I am falling in love
Falling, falling in love.

Maybe it's more than the moon
Maybe it's more than the birds
Maybe it's more than the sight of the night
In a light too lovely for words.
Maybe it's more than the earth
Shining in silvery blue
Maybe the reason I'm feeling this way
Has something to do with you.

It's a grand night for singing
The moon is flying high
And smewhere a bird who is bound to be heard
Is throwing his heart at the sky.

It's a grand night for singing
The stars are bright above
The earth is aglow and to add to the show
I think I am falling in love
Falling, falling in love.


It's a Grand Night - Rodgers & Hammerstein

It's a grand ol' flag
It's a high-flying flat
With its red and its white and its blue

..your insolence is showing.

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.

Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Grand[ Ole] Flag

Going home
Going home
Oh the dark night is over now
I'm going home

To the land I love
To the land I love
And the one girl who waits for me
I'm going home

I will cross the sea
I will cross the sea
I am going home forever
I'm going home

Going home
Going home
Going home

~Randy Newman, Going Home

Fi, now prithee, John
Do not worry man
Let's be happy and
Drink a bout

You're a rogue
You cheated me
I'll swear before
This company
I caren't a farthing
Sir for all
You are so stout

Sir, you lie
I scorn your word
And any man
Who wears a sword
For all your huff
Who cares a damn
And who cares for you!

--A round for milo in his moods

I've been going out with a girl
Her name is Julie
But last night she said to me
when we were watching telly
(this is what she said)
She said listen John I love you
But there's this bloke I fancy
I dont want to two time you
So its the end for you and me
Who's this bloke I asked her
Goooooordon, she replied
Not THAT poof, I said dismayed
yes but he's no poof she cried - he's more a man than you'll ever be

Here we go, two three four

I was so upset that I cried all the way to the chip shop
When I came out there was Gordon standing at the bus stop
And guess who was with him
Yeah, Julie, and they were both laughing at me
oh, she is cruel and heartless
to pack me for Gordon
Just cos he's better looking than me
just cos he's cool and trendy

Jilted John

Your faith is not faithful
You grace has no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there nowhere out of this place?

There's a baby crying softly
In a dark and dangerous place
She's imprisoned by no language
Fear grips her tiny face
In God's house she's held a hostage
By a cruel and heartless mob
There's some rules they think God's written
And it justifies their job

Sisters of Mercy
Daughters of hell
They always weave
Their webs of flies
And wrap you in their wicked spell
Sisters of Mercy,
Masters of pain
They tried to crucify your innocence
And do it in God's name

from Sisters of Mercy by Cher

There's a baby crying softly
In a dark and dangerous place
She's imprisoned with no language
Fear grips her tiny face

Before her eyes a life is passing
A pox is in the womb
Her mother's sins are everlasting
The womb becomes her tomb.

From the song Choice by Baptist Mothers

Carefully on tiptoe stealing
Breathing softly as we may
Every step with cautious feeling
We will softly still away

Goodness me! Why what was that?
Silent be! It was the cat!
It was, it was the cat!

They're right; it was the cat!

G&S
more or less

She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
Like a watercolour in the rain
Don't bother asking for explanations
She'll just tell you that she came
In the year of the cat
