    "It's Now Or Never"

    by Elvis Presley
    songwriters: Wally Gold/Aaron Schroeder
    Aug. 15th, 1960 - (#1 - 5 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    It's now or never,
    come hold me tight
    Kiss me my darling,
    be mine tonight
    Tomorrow will be too late,
    it's now or never
    My love won't wait

    When I first saw you
    with your smile so tender
    My heart was captured,
    my soul surrendered
    I'd spend a lifetime
    waiting for the right time
    Now that your near
    the time is here at last

    It's now or never,
    come hold me tight
    Kiss me my darling,
    be mine tonight
    Tomorrow will be too late,
    it's now or never
    My love won't wait

    Just like a willow,
    we would cry an ocean
    If we lost true love
    and sweet devotion
    Your lips excite me,
    let your arms invite me
    For who knows when
    we'll meet again this way

    It's now or never,
    come hold me tight
    Kiss me my darling,
    be mine tonight
    Tomorrow will be too late,
    it's now or never
    My love won't wait
    it's now or never
    My love won't wait
    it's now or never
    My love won't wait

    It's now or never
    My love... won't wait...

    "My Heart Has A Mind Of It's Own"

    by Connie Francis
    songwriters: Howard Greenfield/Jack Keller
    Sep. 26th, 1960 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I told this heart of mine
    Our love could never be
    But then I hear your voice and something stirs inside of me
    Somehow I can't dismiss
    The memory of your kiss
    Guess my heart has a mind of it's own

    No matter what I do
    No matter what I say
    No matter how I try
    I just can't turn the other way
    When I'm with someone new
    I always think of you
    Guess my heart has a mind of it's own

    You're not in love with me
    So why can't I forget
    I'm just your used to be
    It's wrong and yet

    I know forgetting you
    Would be a hopeless thing
    For I'm a puppet and
    I just can't seem to break the strings
    I say I'll let you go
    But then my heart says no
    Guess my heart has a mind of it's own

    Guess my heart has a mind of it's own...

    Oct. 10th, 1960 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (sounds of Indians yelping)
    (Ho...)

    (That famous day in history the men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on)
    (And from the rear a voice was heard)
    (A brave you man with a trembling word rang loud and clear)
    What am I doin' here?

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
    Hey, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
    I had a dream last night about the comin' fight
    Somebody yelled "attack!"
    And there I stood with a arrow in my back

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go (forward Ho!!)--aaww

    SPOKEN: Look at them bushes out there
    They're moving and there's a injun behind every one
    Hey, Mr. Custer, you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
    HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!!
    (sound of shooting arrow) Hmm, you're a little bit late on that one, Charlie
    Hooh, I bet that smarts!

    (They were sure of victory, the men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on)

    (But then from the rear a voice was heard)
    (That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear)
    What am I doin' here?

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
    Listen, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
    There's a redskin a'waitin' out there, just fixin to take my hair
    A coward I've been called cuz I don't wanna wind up dead or bald

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go (forward HO)--aaww

    SPOKEN: I wonder what the injun word for friend is
    Let's see, friend -- kemo sabe, that's it
    KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
    (sound of shooting arrow) Nope, that itn't it
    Look at them durned injuns
    They're runnin' around like a bunch of wild Indians-heh, heh, heh
    Nah, this ain't no time for jokin'

    (sound of shooting arrows)

    Can't you feel it when we touch
    I will never never let you go
    I love you oh so much

    You can dance go and carry on till the night is gone and it's time to go
    If he asks if you're all alone can he take you home you must tell him no
    Cause don't forget who's taking you home and in whose arm's you're gonna be
    So darlin' save the last dance for me

    Cause don't forget who's taking you home and in whose arm's your gonna be

    Oct. 24th, 1960 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Wanted, wanted)
    Alone, so alone that I could cry
    I want to be wanted (wanted)
    Alone, watching lovers passing by--
    I want to be wanted

    When I am kissed, I want his lips to really kiss me
    When we're apart, I want his heart to really miss me
    I want to know he loves me so his eyes are misting
    That's the way - I want to be loved

    Alone, just my lonely heart knows how
    I want to be wanted (wanted) - right now
    Not tomorrow, but right now
    I want to be wanted

    I want someone to share my love with and my tears with
    Someone I know I'd love to spend a million years with
    Where is this someone somewhere meant for me?

    (Alone) Just my lonely heart knows how
    I want to be wanted (Right now)
    Not tomorrow, but right now
    I want to be wanted

    I want someone to share my laughter and my tears with
    Someone I know I'd love to spend a million years with
    Where is this someone somewhere meant for me?
    (Someone somewhere) Meant for me

    Lyrics:

    Georgia, Georgia
    The whole day through (the whole day through)
    Just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)

    I said a Georgia, Georgia
    A song of you
    Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines

    Other arms reach out to me
    Other eyes smile tenderly
    Still in the peaceful dreams I see
    The road leads back to you

    I said Georgia, oh Georgia, no peace I find
    Just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)

    Other arms reach out to me
    Other eyes smile tenderly
    Still in peaceful dreams I see
    The road leads back to you

    Whoa-whoa Georgia, Georgia
    No peace, no peace I find
    Just an old, sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)
    I said just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind

    "Are You Lonesome To-night?" by Elvis Presley

    Post  Admin on October 7th 2012, 4:53 am

    "Are You Lonesome To-night?"

    by Elvis Presley
    songwriters: Lou Handman/Roy Turk
    Nov. 28th, 1960 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Are you lonesome tonight,
    do you miss me tonight?
    Are you sorry we drifted apart?
    Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
    When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
    Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
    Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
    Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
    Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

    [Spoken] I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
    You know someone said that the world's a stage
    And each must play a part
    Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart
    Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
    You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
    Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
    And why I'll never know
    Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
    And I had no cause to doubt you
    But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
    Than go on living without you
    Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
    With emptiness all around
    And if you won't come back to me
    Then make them bring the curtain down.

    Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
    Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Stars hang suspended above a floating yellow moon
    Two hearts were blended while angels sang a lovers tune
    And so we kissed not knowing if our hearts could pay the price
    But heaven welcomed us to paradise blessing our love

    Then came the sunrise fading the moon and stars from sight
    Recalling always our wonderland by night

    Stars hang suspended above a floating yellow moon
    Two hearts were blended while angels sang a lovers tune
    And so we kissed not knowing if our hearts could pay the price
    But heaven welcomed us to paradise blessing our love

    Then came the sunrise fading the moon and stars from sight
    Recalling always our wonderland by night

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Tonight you're mine completely
    You give your love so sweetly
    Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
    But will you love me tomorrow?

    Is this a lasting treasure
    Or just a moment's pleasure?
    Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
    Will you still love me tomorrow?

    Tonight with words unspoken
    You say that I'm the only one
    But will my heart be broken
    When the night meets the morning sun?

    I'd like to know that your love
    Is love I can be sure of
    So tell me now, and I won't ask again
    Will you still love me tomorrow?

    So tell me now, and I won't ask again
    Will you still love me tomorrow?
    Will you still love me tomorrow?
    Will you still love me tomorrow?

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
    Without a dream in my heart
    Without a love of my own

    Blue Moon, you knew just what I was there for
    You heard me saying a prayer for
    Someone I really could care for

    And then there suddenly appeared before me
    The only one my arms will ever hold
    I heard somebody whisper, 'Please adore me'
    And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

    Blue Moon, now I'm no longer alone
    Without a dream in my heart
    Without a love of my own[

    (this one will need further work as it has alot of backing vocals)

    As I walk along I wonder a-what went wrong
    With our love, a love that was so strong
    And as I still walk on, I think of the things we've done
    Together, a-while our hearts were young

    I'm a-walkin' in the rain
    Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
    Wishin' you were here by me
    To end this misery
    And I wonder
    I why-why-why-why wonder
    Why
    Ah-why-why-why-why-why she ran away
    And I wonder where she will stay
    My little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway

    I'm a-walkin' in the rain
    Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
    Wishin' you were here by me
    To end this misery
    And I wonder
    I why-why-why-why wonder
    Why
    Ah-why-why-why-why-why she ran away
    And I wonder where she will stay
    My little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway

    songwriter: Allen Toussaint
    May 22nd, 1961 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law

    The worst person I know
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    A she worries me, so
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    If she'd leave us alone
    A we would have a happy home
    Sent from down below
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law

    Satan should be her name
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    To me they're bout the same
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    Every time I open my mouth
    She steps in, tries to put me out
    How could she stoop so low
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law

    I come home with my pay
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    She asks me what I made
    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    She thinks her advice is the constitution
    But if she would leave that would be the solution
    And don't come back no more

    (Mother in Law) Mother In Law
    My......(mother in Law) mother in law, moa....
    Mother In Law
    Mother In Law
    Whoa, yes
    My... (fades out)

    "Travelin' Man"

    by Ricky Nelson
    songwriter: Jerry Fuller
    May 29th, 1961 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I'm a travelin' man
    Made a lot of stops all over the world
    And in every port I own the heart
    Of at least one lovely girl

    I've a pretty Seniorita waiting for me
    Down in old Mexico
    If you're ever in Alaska stop and see
    My cute little Eskimo

    Oh, my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
    Makes my heart start to yearn
    And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
    Waits for my return

    Pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea
    I remember the night
    When we walked in the sand of Waikiki
    And I held you, oh, so tight

    Oh, my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town
    Makes my heart start to yearn
    And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
    Waits for my return

    Pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea
    I remember the night
    When we walked in the sand of Waikiki
    And I held you, oh, so tight

    Oh, I'm a travelin' man
    Yes, I'm a travelin' man
    Yes, I'm a travelin' man
    Whoa, I'm a travelin' man
    mmmm mmm mmmm mmm

    by Roy Orbison
    songwriters: Joe Melson/Roy Orbison
    Jun. 5th, 1961 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Just runnin’ scared each place we go
    So afraid that he might show
    Yeah, runnin’ scared, what would I do
    If he came back and wanted you

    Just runnin’ scared, feelin’ low
    Runnin’ scared, you love him so
    Just runnin’ scared, afraid to lose
    If he came back which one would you choose

    Then all at once he was standing there
    So sure of himself, his head in the air
    My heart was breaking, which one would it be
    You turned around and walked away with me

    "Moody River"

    by Pat Boone
    songwriter: Gary Bruce
    Jun. 19th, 1961 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Moody river, moody river)

    Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
    Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life

    Last Saturday evenin' came to the old oak tree
    It stands beside the river where you were to meet me
    On the ground your glove I found
    With a note addressed to me
    It read, Dear love, I've done you wrong
    Now I must set you free
    No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin
    I just couldn't tell you that guy was just a friend

    Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
    Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life

    I looked into the muddy water and what could I see?
    I saw a lonely, lonely face just lookin' back at me
    Tears in his eyes and a prayer on his lips
    And the glove of his lost love at his fingertips

    Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
    Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life

    Don't you know that I danced, I danced till a quarter to three
    With the help, last night, of Daddy G.

    It was the swingin'est song that could ever be,
    It was a night with Daddy G.

    Until you get hip with that jive
    And take a band like the Church Street Five.
    Oh don't you know that I danced,

    Everybody was as happy as they could be
    And they were swingin with Daddy G.
    Blow Daddy!
    Let me tell you now,
    I never had it so good
    Yeah and I know you never could
    Until you get hip with that jive
    And take a band like the Church Street Five.
    Oh don't you know that I danced,
    I danced till a quarter to three
    With the help last night of Daddy G.
    He was swingin on the sax like a nobody could,
    and I was dancin all over the room

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Baby, baby you did something to me

    I couldn't sleep at all last night
    Got to thinkin' of you
    Baby things weren't right
    Well I was tossin' and turnin'
    Turnin' and tossin'
    a-tossin' and turnin' all night

    I kicked the blankets on the floor
    Turned my pillow upside down
    I never never did before
    'cause I was tossin' and turnin'
    Turnin' and tossin'
    a-tossin' and turnin' all night

    Jumped out of bed
    Turned on the light
    I pulled down the shade
    Went to the kitchen for a bite
    Rolled up the shade
    Turned off the light
    I jumped back into bed
    It was the middle of the night

    The clock downstairs was strikin' four
    Couldn't get you off my mind
    I heard the milkman at the door
    'cause I was tossin' and turnin'
    Turnin' and tossin'
    a-tossin' and turnin' all night

    Jumped out of bed
    Turned on the light
    I pulled down the shade
    Went to the kitchen for a bite
    Rolled up the shade
    Turned off the light
    I jumped back into bed
    It was the middle of the night

    The clock downstairs was strikin' four
    I couldn't get you off my mind
    I heard the milkman at the door
    'cause I was tossin' and turnin'
    Turnin' and tossin'
    a-tossin' and turnin' all, yay, yay, yay
    I was a-tossin' and turnin'
    Turnin' and tossin
    Toss and turn all (fades out)
    FADE
    Turnin' and tossin'

    Elvis Presley's Version:


    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Can't you see
    I love you
    Please don't break my heart in two
    That's not hard to do
    'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
    And if you say goodbye
    Then I know that I would cry
    Maybe I would die
    'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

    There's no strings upon this love of mine
    It was always you from the start
    Treat me nice
    Treat me good
    Treat me like you really should
    'Cause I'm not made of wood
    And I don't have a wooden heart

    Muss i denn, muss i denn
    Zum Stadtele hinaus
    Stadtele hinaus
    Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

    Muss i denn, muss i denn
    Zum Stadtele hinaus
    Stadtele hinaus
    Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

    There's no strings upon this love of mine
    It was always you from the start
    Sei mir gut
    Sei mir gut
    Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
    Wie du wirklich sollst
    'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    My tears are fallin' 'cause you've taken her away
    And though it really hurts me so
    There's something that I've gotta say

    Take good care of my ba-a-a-by
    Please don't ever make her blu-u-u-ue
    Just tell her that you love her
    Make sure you're thinking of her
    In everything you say and do-o-o-o

    Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
    Now don't you ever make her cry-y-y-y
    Just let your love surround her
    Paint a rainbow all around her
    Don't let her see a cloudy sky

    Once upon a time that little girl was mine
    If I'd been true, I know she'd never be with you

    So, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
    Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
    And if you should discover
    That you don't really love her
    Just send my baby back home to me

    Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
    Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
    And if you should discover
    That you don't really love her
    Just send my baby back home to me

    Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
    Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
