CHANCE to DANCE

Come and dance awhile
come swing and sway
with every step we’ll push
the blues so far away
they' ll fall into the sky
clouds will pass them by
and smile

Sing a melody
Sing a sound
with every tune we’ll turn
this crazy world around and ‘round
‘til the sun and moon
get dizzy watching you
and me

And when we are moving
Starlight fills the air
You are the one I love
The one who takes me there

SURELY, SHIRLEY

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
He wants to tell that girl
with the curls how he feels
oh but he’s way too shy

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday

He gets kind of swirly,
like a hurly burley
every time he sees her walk by
He can’t say a word to that bird he adores
‘cause his tongue is tied

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
But maybe today he will say ”Hey, babe!”
and Shirley will stop and say “Hi”

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday
Surely, Shirley

ARE YE SLEEPIN', MAGGIE?

Mirk and rainy is the nicht,
there's no' a staum in a' the carry
Lichtnin's gleam athwart the lift,
and cauld winds drive wi' winters fury.

Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie
Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie
let me in, for loud the linn is howling
ower the warlock Craigie.

Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank,
the rifted wood roars wild and dreary
Loud the iron yett does clank,
the cry of hoolits mak's me eerie.

Chorus

Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak,
for fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy
Cauld's the blast upon my cheek,
O rise, O rise my bonnie lady.

Chorus

She's ope'd the door, she's let him in,
she's cuist aside his dreepin plaidie
Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind,
for Maggie noo I'm an aside ye.

Chorus

A Noo since your waukin' Maggie,
noo since yer waukin' Maggie
What care I for hoolits cry,
for boortree bank or warlock Craigie

Chorus
