TRADITIONALS

GOODNIGHT, IRENE

Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight,

Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene,

I'll see you in my dreams


Last Saturday night I got married

Me and my wife settled down

Now me and my wife are parted

I'm gonna take another stroll in town


REFREIN :
Sometimes I live in the country

Sometimes I live in the town

Sometimes I have a great notion

To jump into the river and drown



I LOVE TO PLAY MY OLD BANJO

I lo-lo-love to pla-la-lay my ol-ol-old banjo-lo-lo

and rele-le-st it o-lo-lon my knee-lee-lee-lee-lee-lee-lee

but no-lo-low the stri-li-lings are bro-lo-loken dolo-lown

and tha-la-lat’s not goo-loo-lood for me-le-le-le-le-le-le
I too-loo-look it to-lo-lo the ma-la-lander sho-lo-lop

and a-la-lasked what he-le-le could do-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo

he sa-la-laid: “the stri-li-lings are bro-lo-loken do-lo-lown

and tha-la-lat’s not goo-loo-lood for you-lou-lou-lou-lou-lou-lou


I too-loo-look it to-lo-lo ano-lo-lother sho-lo-lop

and a-la-lasked what he-le-le could do-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo

and no-lo-low the stri-li-lings are fili-lixed aga-la-lain

and i-li-lit’s as goo-loo-lood as ne-le-le-le-le-le-lew




MY BONNIE

My Bonnie is over the ocean,

My Bonnie is over the sea

My Bonnie is over the ocean,

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me, to me,

Bring back, bring back, oh, bring back my Bonnie to me, to me

Bring back, bring back, oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.
Last night, as I laid on my pillow

Last night as I laid down my bed,

Last night, as I laid on my pillow

I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead, was dead

Bring back, bring back, oh, bring back my Bonnie to me, to me

Bring back, bring back, oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.




ROARING TWENTIES




AIN'T SHE SWEET ?

Ain't she sweet ? See her coming down the street .....

And now I ask you very confidentially : ain't she sweet ?

Ain't she nice ? Look her over once or twice .....

And now I ask you very confidentially : ain't she nice ?
Just cast an eye in her direction

Oh, me, oh, my, ain't that perfection ?


I repeat : don't you think that's kind of neat ?

And then I ask you very confidentially : ain't she sweet ?



ALL OF ME

All of me, why not take all of me ?

Can't you see I'm no good without you

Take my lips : I want to loose them

Take my arms, I'll never use them

Your good bye left me with eyes that cry

How can I go on, dear, without you

You took the part that once was my heart

So why not take all of me ?

DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE

I wanna lay down my heavy load down by the riverside

Down by the riverside, down by the riverside

I wanna lay down my heavy load down by the riverside

To study war no more. I ain't gonna study war no more (6 x)
I wanna lay down my sword and shield down by the riverside

Down by the riverside, down by the riverside

I wanna lay down my sword and shield down by the riverside

To study war no more. I ain't gonna study war no more (6 x)


I wanna try on my long white robe down by the riverside

Down by the riverside, down by the riverside

I wanna try on my long white robe down by the riverside

To study war no more. I ain't gonna study war no more (6 x)



FIVE FOOT TWO

Five foot two, eyes of blue,

But oh, what these five feet could do .....

Has anybody seen my girl

Turned up nose, turned down hose

Never had no other beaus

Has anybody seen my girl ?
Now, if you turn into a five foot two,

Covered with fur,

Diamond rings, and all those things,

Betcha life it isn't her


But could she love, could she whoo,

Could she could she could she coo:

Has anybody seen my girl ?

FRANKIE AND JOHNNY

Frankie and Johnny were sweethearts;

Oh, what a couple in love

Frankie was loyal to Johnny

Just as true as the stars above

He was her man, but he done her wrong


Frankie went down to the drugstore;

Some ice cream she wanted to buy

The soda-jerk told her that Johnny

Was makin' love to Nellie Bley

He was her man, but he was doin' her wrong.
Frankie peeped in on the party

She got a surprise when she saw

That Nellie and Johnny were makin' love

And sippin' soda through a straw

He was her man, but he was doin' her wrong.
Frankie flew into a tantrum

She wipped out that old fourty-four

And a rit-a-ti-toot that gal did shoot

Through the hardwood swingin' door

She shot her man who was doin' her wrong
Bring in your crepe and your flowers

And bring on your rubber tyred hack

'Cause eight men are goin' to the graveyard,

But only seven are comin' back

She shot her man who was doin' her wrong
This is the end of the story

And this is the end of my song

Frankie is down in the jailhouse

And she cries the whole night long

"He was my man, but he done me wrong. "

GEORGIA ON MY MIND

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through

Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind

Georgia, Georgia, a song of you

Comes as sweet and clear as the moonlight on the pines
Other arms reach out to me; other lips smile tenderly

Still in peaceful dreams I see the road leads back to you

Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find

Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind



RED ROSES

I want some red roses for a blue lady

Mister florist, take my order pleasek

We had a silly quarrel just the other day

Bet that these red roses chase her blues away

Wrap up some red roses for a blue lady

Send them to the sweetest girl in town

And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick

Your best white orchids for her wedding gown.

SIDE BY SIDE

Oh, we ain't got a barrel of money

Maybe we're ragged and funny

But we'll travel along, singing this song : side by side

Don't know what is coming tomorrow

Maybe it's trouble and sorrow

But we'll travel the road, sharing our load : side by side
Through all kinds of weather

What if the sky should fall ?

But as long as we're together

It doesn't matter at all


When all our friends will have parted

We'll be the same as we started

Just a-traveling along, singing this song : side by side (3x)
