Ramblin' Rose

Lyrics:

Artist: Nat King Bole
Peak billboard position # 2 in 1962
Words and Music by: Noel Sherman and Joe Sherman

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why you ramble, no one knows
Wild and wind-blown, that's how you've grown
Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

Ramble on, ramble on
When your ramblin' days are gone
Who will love you with a love true
When your ramblin' days are through?

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why I want you, heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true
Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

Spoken

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Why I want you, heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true
Who can cling toa ramblin' rose?

Sweet Georgia Brown

Lyrics:

No gal made has got a shade
On sweet Georgia brown,
Two left feet, oh, so neat,
Has sweet Georgia brown!

They all sigh, and want to die,
For sweet Georgia brown!
I'll tell you just why,
You know I don't lie, not much:

It's been said she knocks 'em dead,
When she lands in town!
Since she came, why it's a shame,
How she cools them down!

Fellas she can't get
Must be fellas she ain't met!
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her,
Sweet Georgia brown!

No gal made has got a shade
On sweet Georgia brown,
Two left feet, oh, so neat,
Has sweet Georgia brown!

They all sigh, and want to die,
For sweet Georgia brown!
I'll tell you just why,
You know I don't lie; not much:

All those gifts those courters give,
To sweet Georgia brown,
They buy clothes at fashion shows,
With one dollar down,

Oh, boy! tip your hat!
Oh, joy! she's the cat!
Who's that, mister? 'tain't a sister!
Sweet Georgia brown!

The Shepherd's Song

Lyrics:

Chorus:
You say that you are my sheep,
why aren't you following me?
You say that I am your shepherd,
why aren't you following me?
My sheep hear my voice, they come running to me;
and you say I am your shepherd,
why aren't you following me?

Verse 1:
I told my sheep to visit the sick
and to take the stranger in.
When you see someone who's naked,
use your wool to cover their skin;
and you say I am your shepherd,
why aren't you following me?

Chorus

Verse 2:
I told my sheep to love one another,
even your enemies too;
but you have love for only those
who have that love for you.
And you say I am your shepherd;
why aren't you following me?

Autumn Leaves

Lyrics:

Another day another life
Passes by just like mine
It's not complicated
Another mind
Another soul
Another body to grow old
It's not complicated

Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
And Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Another tear
Another cry
Another place for us to die
Its not complicated
Another love that's gone to waste
Another light lost from your face
It's complicated

Is it that it's over or do birds still sing for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
And hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Ooh how I miss you
My symphony played the song that carried you out
And Ooh how I miss you
And I miss you and I wish you'd stay
Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves

And Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you're miles away
And yesterday you were here with me
Mhhh, mhh, mhhh, mhhh,mhhh,mho

Touch down
Like a seven four seven
Stay out and we'll live forever now

Songwriters
SHEERAN, ED / GOSLING, JAKE

If I Only Had a Brain

Lyrics:

I could wile away the hours
Conferring with the flowers
Consulting with the rain
And my head I'd be scratching
While my thoughts were busy hatching
If I only had a brain

I'd unravel any riddle
For any individ'le
In trouble or in pain

With the thoughts you'd be thinking
You could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain

Oh, I would tell you why
The ocean's near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I'd sit and think some more

I would not be just a nuffing
My head all full of stuffing
My heart all full of pain
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain

Happy New Year!


A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
~ Edgar Guest ~

Happy New Year!
