    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    April love is for the very young
    Every star's a wishing star that shines for you
    April love is all the seven wonders
    One little kiss can tell you this is true

    Sometimes an April day will suddenly bring showers
    Rain to grow the flowers for her first bouquet
    But April love can slip right through your fingers
    So if she's the one don't let her run away

    Sometimes an April day will suddenly bring showers
    Rain to grow the flowers for her first bouquet
    But April love can slip right through your fingers
    So if she's the one don't let her run away

    For love may come and tap you on the shoulder,
    Some star-less night!
    An’ just in case you feel you wanta’ hold her,

    Heavenly shades of night are falling
    It's twilight time
    Out of the mist your voice is calling
    It's twilight time
    When purple colored curtains
    Mark the end of the day
    I hear you my dear at twilight time

    Deepening shadows gather splendor
    As day is done
    Fingers of light will soon surrender
    The setting sun
    I count the moments darling
    Till you're here with me
    Together at last at twilight time

    Here in the after-glow of day
    We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
    Here in the sweet and same old way
    I fall in love again as I did then

    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old
    Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    With dreams untold
    Each day I pray for evening just
    To be with you
    Together at last at twilight time

    Here in the after-glow of day
    We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
    Here in the sweet and same old way
    I fall in love again as I did then

    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old
    Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    With dreams untold
    Each day I pray for evening just
    To be with you
    Together at last at twilight time
    Together at last at twilight time

    I’m dreamin’ my life away

    I need you so that I could die
    I love you so and that is why
    Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
    Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
    Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

    Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream (fades out)

    "The Purple People Eater"

    by Sheb Wooley
    songwriter: Sheb Wooley
    Jun. 9th, 1958 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
    It had the one long horn, one big eye
    I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
    It looks like a purple people eater to me

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    (One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
    A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

    Well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
    I said Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me
    I heard him say in a voice so gruff
    I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
    One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    Sure looks strange to me (One horn?)

    I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
    He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
    But that's not the reason that I came to land
    I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

    Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
    Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
    (He wears short shorts)
    Friendly little people eater
    What a sight to see (oh.......)

    And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
    He started to rock, really rockin' around
    It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
    Sing a bop bop lopa lop alum bam boom

    Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
    Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
    I like short shorts
    Flyin' little people eater
    What a sight to see (Purple People?)

    And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
    I saw him last night on a TV show
    He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
    Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

    Tequila..

    Well a hard headed woman,
    a soft hearted man

    ever since the world began
    Oh yeah (oh yeah), ever since the world began, ah ha hum

    out my curly hair."
    Oh yeah (oh yeah), ever since the world began, ah ha hum

    Oh yeah (oh yeah, ever since the world began, ah ha hum
    a hard headed woman been
    a thorn in the side of man, ah ha hum

    a hard headed woman been
    a thorn in the side of man...

    "Yakety Yak"

    by The Coasters
    songwriters: Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller
    Jul. 21st, 1958 - (#1 - 1 week)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Take out the papers and the trash
    Or you don't get no spendin' cash
    If you don't scrub that kitchen floor
    You ain't gonna rock and roll no more
    Yakety yak (don't talk back)

    Just finish cleanin' up your room
    Let's see that dust fly with that broom
    Get all that garbage out of sight
    Or you don't go out Friday night
    Yakety yak (don't talk back)

    You just put on your coat and hat
    And walk yourself to the laundromat
    And when you finish doin' that
    Bring in the dog and put out the cat
    Yakety yak (don't talk back)

    Don't you give me no dirty looks
    Your father's hip; he knows what cooks
    Just tell your hoodlum friend outside
    You ain't got time to take a ride
    Yakety yak (don't talk back)

    Yakety yak, yakety yak
    Yakety yak, yakety yak
    Yakety yak, yakety yak
    Yakety yak (fades out)

    "Patricia" by Perez Prado

    "Patricia"

    by Perez Prado
    songwriters: Bob Marcus/Perez Prado
    Jul. 28th, 1958 - (#1 - 1 week)

    (Perez Prado's #1 song was an instrumental but in a 1965
    Mexican movie musical, "El Dengue del Amor", in which
    Prado also had a role, lyrics were added)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Kiss her and your lips will always want Patricia
    Stroll her, see Patricia move with all her charms
    Mambo, Cha-cha, or Meringue it's Patricia
    Heaven, that's where you'll be when she's in you're arms

    In Japan they brag about the Geisha
    Who cares, long Uncle Sam has got Patricia
    Eyes that have a starry sort of gleam for you
    She is like a million dollar dream come true
    Everybody wishes they'd could steal her heart away, I guess
    There's so many trying but she never, never will say yes
    Eyes that have a starry sort of gleam for you
    She is like a million dollar dream come true

    Kiss her and your lips will always want Patricia
    Stroll her, see Patricia move with all her charms
    In Japan they brag about the Geisha
    Who cares, long Uncle Sam has got Patricia

    "Poor Little Fool"

    by Ricky Nelson
    songwriter: Sharon Sheeley
    Aug. 4th, 1958 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I used to play around with hearts that hastened at my call
    But when I met that little girl I knew that I would fall
    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little fool I was your fool oh yeah)

    She played around and teased me with her carefree devil eyes
    She'd hold me close and kiss me but her heart was full of lies
    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little fool I was your fool oh yeah)

    She told me how she cared for me and that we'd never part
    And so for the very first time I gave away my heart
    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little fool I was your fool oh yeah)

    The next day she was gone and I knew she'd lied to me
    She left me with a broken heart and won her victory
    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little fool I was your fool oh yeah)

    Well I'd played this game with other hearts but I never thought I'd see
    The day that someone else would play love's foolish game with me
    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little fool I was your fool oh yeah)

    Poor little fool oh yeah I was a fool uh huh
    (Uh huh poor little, little fool)
    (Poor little fool)

    "Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare)" by Domenico Modugno

    Post  Admin on July 29th 2012, 1:50 am

    "Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare)"

    by Domenico Modugno
    songwriters: Franco Migliacci/Domenico Modugno
    Aug. 18th, 1958 - (#1 - 5 weeks)

    (Modugno's #1 hit was all in Italian. The title translates as,
    "The Blue (Sky), Painted in Blue". Volare means, to fly.
    First foreign language song to hit #1 and also first #1 to fall out
    of the #1 spot only to return to #1)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Penso che un sogno così non ritorni mai più:
    Mi dipingevo le mani e la faccia di blu
    Poi d'improvviso venivo dal vento rapito
    E incominciavo a volare nel cielo infinito

    Volare, oh... cantare, oh...
    Nel blu dipinto di blu, felice di stare lassù
    E volavo, volavo felice più in alto del sole ed ancora più su
    Mentre il mondo pian piano spariva lontano laggiù
    Una musica dolce suonava soltanto per me

    Volare, oh... cantare, oh...
    Nel blu dipinto di blu, felice di stare lassù
    Ma tutti i sogni nell'alba svaniscono perché
    Quando tramonta, la luna li porta con sé
    Ma io continuo a sognare negli occhi tuoi belli
    Che sono blu come un cielo trapunto di stelle

    Volare, oh... cantare, oh...
    Nel blu degli occhi tuoi blu, felice di stare quaggiù
    E continuo a volare felice più in alto del sole ed ancora più su
    Mentre il mondo pian piano scompare negli occhi tuoi blu
    La tua voce è una musica dolce che suona per me

    Volare, oh... cantare, oh...
    Nel blu degli occhi tuoi blu, felice di stare quaggiù
    Nel blu degli occhi tuoi blu, felice di stare quaggiù con te

    -----------------------
    English translation:
    -----------------------

    I think that a dream like that won't never return
    I painted my hands and my face with blue
    Then suddendly, I was taken by the wind
    And I began to fly in the endless sky...

    Flying....oh oh...singing...oh oh oh oh!
    in the blue sky, painted in blue. so glad to be there
    And I was flying and flying, happily higher than the sun and more
    While the world was slowly disappearing so far away
    A sweet music was singing only for me

    Flying....oh oh...singing...oh oh oh oh!
    in the blue sky, painted in blue. so glad to be there
    But all the dreams fall away in the rise because
    the moon brings them away when it falls
    But I'm still dreaming in your beautiful eyes
    that are blue like the sky painted with stars

    Flying....oh oh...singing...oh oh oh oh!
    In the blue sky of your blue eyes, so glad to be there
    And I don't stop flying happily higher than the sun and more
    While the world is slowly disappearing in your blue eyes
    Your voice is a sweet music that sing for me

    Flying....oh oh...singing...oh oh oh oh!
    In the blue sky of your blue eyes, so glad to be there
    In the blue sky of your blue eyes, so glad to be there with you

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Johnny is a joker (he’s a bird)
    A very funny joker (he’s a bird)
    But when he jokes my honey (he’s a dog)
    His jokin’ ain’t so funny (what a dog)
    Johnny is a joker that’s a’tryin’ to steal my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
    He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
    But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
    To me he’s just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
    Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little love of your own

    Johnny kissed the teacher (he’s a bird)
    He tiptoed up to reach her (he’s a bird)
    Well he’s the teacher’s pet now (he’s a dog)
    What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
    He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little love of your own

    He's a bird (fades out)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Many a tear has to fall
    But it's all in the game
    All in the wonderful game
    That we know as love
    You have words with him
    And your future's looking dim
    But these things
    Your hearts can rise above

    Once in a while he won't call
    But it's all in the game
    Soon he'll be there at your side
    With a sweet bouquet
    And he'll kiss your lips
    And caress your waiting fingertips
    And your hearts will fly away

    (Soon he'll be there at your side)
    With a sweet bouquet
    Then he'll kiss your lips
    And caress your waiting fingertips
    And your hearts will fly away

    Spoiler:

    (all right you Chipmunks! Ready to sing your song?
    -I'll say we are!
    -Yeah!
    -Let's sing it now!
    Okay, Simon?
    -Okay!
    Okay, Theodore?
    -Okay!
    Okay, Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!
    -OKAY!!!)

    Christmas, Christmas time is near
    Time for toys and time for cheer
    We've been good, but we can't last
    Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
    Want a plane that loops the loop
    Me, I want a hula hoop
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.

    (Okay fellas get ready.
    That was very good, Simon.
    -Naturally.
    Very good Theodore.
    -Ahhh.
    Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it.
    Ah, Alvin. Alvin. ALVIN!
    -OKAY.)

    Want a plane that loops the loop
    I still want a hula hoop
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.

    (Very good, boys
    -Lets sing it again! Yeah, lets sing it again!
    No, That's enough, lets not overdo it
    -What do you mean overdo it?
    -We want to sing it again!
    Now wait a minute, boys
    -Why can't we sing it again?
    -[chipmunk chatter]
    Alvin, cut that out.. wait a sec..Theodore, just a minute.
    Simon will you cut that out? Boys...)
