Any girl who's reached the age
Of seventeen or thereabouts
Has but one desire in view
She knows she has reached the stage
Of needing one to care about
Nothing else will really do

Childhood games are left behind
And her heart takes wing
Hoping that it soon will find
Just one thing

We've got to have,
We plot to have,
For it's a dreary not to have
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"
We scheme about
And dream about
And we've been known to scream about
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"

He is really a necessity
If you want to get on
And we might as well confess it
He is a sine qua non

We sigh for him
And cry for him,
And we would gladly die for him
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"

We plead to have,
We need to have,
In fact our poor hearts bleed to have
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"
We'd save for him
And slave for him
We'd even misbehave for him
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"

Life without us is impossible
And devoid of all charms
No amount of idle gossip'll
Keep them out of our arms
We're blue without
Can't do without
Our dreams just won't come true without
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"

We're blue without
Can't do without
Our dreams just won't come true without
That certain thing called "The Boy Friend"

I'll be home, my darling
Please wait for me (wait for me)
We'll stroll along together
Once more our love will be free
At the corner drugstore
Each Saturday we would meet (we would meet)
I'd walk you home in the moonlight
All of these things we'll repeat
So darling, as I write this letter
Here's hoping you're thinking of me
My mind's made up.
So long until I'll be home to start serving you
I'll be home, my darling
Please wait for me (wait for me)
I'd walk you home in the moonlight
Once more our love will be free
SPOKEN: Darling, as I write this letter, here's hoping you're
Thinking of me.My mind's made up.
So long until I'll be home to start serving you.
I'll be home, my darling
Please wait for me (wait for me)
I'll walk you home in the moonlight
Once more our love will be free

I was engaged at the time and Lawrence had ben posted to Singapore for nearly two years to do his National Service so I used to listen to this and bawl my eyes out :-( :-(

It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair

And then she asks me, "Do I look alright?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight"

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me

And then she asks me, "Do you feel alright?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight"
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you

It's time to go home now
And I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed

And then I tell her as I turn out the light
I say, "My darling, you are wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you are wonderful tonight"

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

You're my everything underneath the sun
You're my everything rolled up into one
You're my only dream, my only real reality
You're my idea of a perfect personality
You're my everything, everything I need
You're the song I sing and the book I read
You're a way beyond belief and just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring, my everything
You're my everything (everything I need)
You're the song I sing and the book I read
You're a way beyond belief and just to make it brief
You're my winter, summer, spring, my everything


I have the Eddie Fisher version but Nat King Cole also recorded it

"The Very Thought of You" by Al Bowlly
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDYrXcQj4JI


The very thought of you and I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me that's everything

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

*What A Wonderful World"


I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

NO OTHER LOVE

"No Other Love can warm my heart

Now that I've known the comfort of your arms

No other love.

Oh the sweet contentment that I find with you Every Time

Every Time.

No other lips could want you more For I was born to glory in your kiss.

Forever yours

I was blessed with love to love you Til the stars burn out above you

Til the moon is but a silver shell

No other love, Let no other love

Know the wonder of your spell".

One of the best versions is sung by Jo Stafford.

Hello

Two sentimental songs from yesteryear.


IF YOU WERE THE ONLY BOY IN THE WORLD

"Sometimes when I feel low

and things look blue

I wish a boy I had.......... say one like you.

Someone within my heart to build a throne

Someone who'd never part, to call my own


If you were the only boy in the world

and I were the only girl



Nothing else would matter in the world today

We could go on loving in the same old way

A garden of Eden just made for two

With nothing to mar our joy

I would say such wonderful things to you

There would be such wonderful things to do

If you were the only boy in the world

and I were the only girl".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clifford Grey wrote the music and Nat D. Ayer supplied the lyrics in 1916.

This song has been recorded many times over the years including
Webster Booth and Anne Ziegfield, Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy
and Perry Como.


Take gentle care
Best wishes
Elizabeth
