'Cause I've never once dissed one of yours

I'll light the fire
You place the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is done
Such a cosy room
The windows are illuminated
By the evening sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you

Our House~CSN&Y

Sitting by the fireside with a book in your hand
Two lazy dogs sittin' watchin' your man
Three roses were bought with you in mind
Three roses were bought with you in mind

I gotta stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want I gotta
Stop and see what I'm on about
Stop and feel what I want with you
Ah

Walking through a wonderland, I got you by the hand
Every move we made, just as if it were planned
Three roses were bought with you in mind
Three roses were bought with you in mind

Three Roses~America

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back
It always leads back to you
I'm in Georgia, Georgia, sweet Georgia
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia forever on my mind...

as sung by Ray Charles

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though itís breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youíll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
Youíll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
Thatís the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whatís the use of crying?
Youíll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

<instrumental interlude>

Thatís the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whatís the use of crying?
Youíll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons and music by Charlie Chaplin

Now I look'ed east
And I look'ed west
Where the sun, it shown wonderful warm
And who should I spy
But my bonny, bonny boy
He was locked in another girl's arms
He was locked in another girl's arms

Now the girl who's the joy
Of my bonny, bonny boy
I'm sure she is never to blame
Though many a long night
She has robbed me of my rest
She never will do it again
She never will do it again

--last two stanzas of a ballad my mom used to sing

I don't wanna say that I've been unhappy with you
But as from today, well I've seen somebody that's new
I ain't no fool and I don't take what I don't want

For I have got another girl
another girl who will love me till the end
Through thick and thin she will always be my friend...

Let's give love a try
Let love control, control your destiny
Owe it to ourselves, yes we do
to live happy eternally.
Sweet love is what we're searching for
And love is what we're looking for
Now that I've got it right here in my hand
I'm gonna spread it all over the land.
Now

Aladamnbama the most watered s...
Once upon a time,
A girl with moonlight in her eyes,
Put her>>> hand<<< in mine,
And said she loved me so . . .
But that was once upon a time,
Very long ago!

Once upon a hill,
We sat beneath the willow tree,
Counting all the stars,
And waiting for the dawn,
But that was once upon a time,
Now, the tree is gone!

How the breeze ruffled through her hair,
How we always laughed,
As though tomorrow wasnít there . . .
We were young,
And didnít have a care,
Where did it go?

Once upon a time,
The world was sweeter than we knew,
Everything was ours,
How happy we were then . . .
But, somehow, once upon a time,
Never comes again!

Once Upon A Time

Up in a balloon, boys
Up in a balloon
Sailing 'round the little stars
And all around the moon
Up in a balloon boys
Up in a balloon
Won't we have a jolly time
Up in a balloon?

--no friggin' idea
