As Time Goes By


Played and sung by Dooley Wilson, in the classic 1942 film “Casablanca”

Sung by Lee Wiley

Piano Rendition by Beegie Adair

As Time Goes By
Music by Herman Hupfeld
Lyrics by Herman Hupfeld
From the 1931 Broadway Musical “Everybody’s Welcome”

[ Prologue:
This day and age we’re living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.

Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein’s theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension

And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]

You must re-mem-ber this /
A kiss is still a kiss / a sigh is just a sigh /
The fun-da-men-tal things ap-ply /
as time goes by /

And when two lo-vers woo /
they still say / I love you /
on that you can re-ly /
no mat-ter what the fu-ture brings /
as time goes by /

Moon-light and love songs /
ne-ver out of date /
Hearts full of pas-sion /
jea-lou-sy and hate /
Wo-man needs man /
and man must have his mate /
That no one / can de-ny /

It’s still the same old sto-ry /
a fight for love and glo-ry /
a case of do or die /
The world will al-ways wel-come lo-vers /
As time goes by /

[Optional: This day and age we’re living in /
Gives cause for ap-pre-hen-sion /
With speed and new in-ven-tion /
And things like third di-men-sion /

Yet we get a tri/fle wea/ry /
With Mr. Ein/stein’s theory /
So we must get down to earth at times /
Relax relieve the tension /

And no mat-ter what the pro-gress /
Or what may yet be proved /
The sim-ple facts of life are such /
They can-not be re-moved/]

Dream a Little Dream of Me
Music by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt, Milton Adolphus
Lyrics by Gus Kahn
1931

Stars shi-ning bright a-bove you /
Night bree-zes seem to whis-per / I love you /
Birds sing-ing in the sy-ca-more tree /
Dream a lit-tle dream of me /

Say Night-y night and kiss me /
Just hold me tight / and tell me you’ll miss me /
While I’m a-lone and blue as can be /
Dream a lit-tle dream of me /

Stars fa-ding / but I lin-ger on / dear /
Still cra-ving your kiss /
I’m long-ing to lin-ger till dawn / dear /
Just say-ing this /

Sweet dreams till sun-beams find you /
Sweet dreams that leave all wor-ries be-hind you /
But in your dreams what-ever they be /
Dream a little dream of me /

Stars fa-ding / but I lin-ger on / dear /
Still cra-ving your kiss /
I’m long-ing to lin-ger till dawn / dear /
Just say-ing this /

Sweet dreams till sun-beams find you /
Sweet dreams that leave all wor-ries far be-hind you /
But in your dreams / what-ever they be /
Dream a lit-tle dream of me!

New York, New York
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
1977

[Instrumental: ]

Start sprea-ding the news /
I’m lea-ving today /
I want to be a part of it /
New York / New York /

These va-ga-bond shoes /
are long-ing to stray /
right through the ve-ry heart of it /
New York / New York /

I want to wake up in a city /
That does-n’t sleep /
and find I’m king of the hill /
top of the heap /

These lit-tle town blues /
are mel-ting away /
I’m gon-na make a brand new start of it /
In old New York /

If I can make it there /
I’ll make it a-ny-where /
It’s up to you /
New York / New York!

Just One of Those Things


Sung by Ella Fitzgerald

Sung by Susan Hayward (No kidding!)
Susan Hayward was not known as a singer, but her rendition is actually more faithful to the score than most others

Sung by Doris Day

Just One of Those Things
Music by Cole Porter
Lyrics by Cole Porter
1935

It was just one of those things /
just one of those cra-zy flings /
one of those bells / that now and then ring /
just one of those things /

It was just one of those nights /
just one of those fa-bu-lous flights /
a trip to the moon / on gos-sa-mer wings /
just one of those things /

If we had thought a bit /
of the end of it / when we star-ted pain-ting the town /
We’d have been a-ware / that our love af-fair /
was too hot / not too cool down /

So good-bye dear and a-men /
here’s ho-ping we meet now and then /
It was great fun /
but it was just one of those things

Anything Goes


Sung by Kate Capshaw, ostensibly in Mandarin Chinese

Sung by Kate Capshaw, in English

Anything Goes
Music by Cole Porter
Lyrics by Cole Porter
1934

Times have cha-anged /
and we’ve of-ten re-wound the clock /
since the Pu-ri-tans got a shock /
when they lan-ded on Ply-mouth Rock /

If to-da-ay /
Any shock they should try to stem /
‘Stead of lan-ding on Ply-mouth Rock /
Ply-mouth Rock would land on the-em /

In ol-den days a glimpse of stoc-king /
was looked on as some-thing shock-ing /
but now / God knows /
Any-thing goes /

Good authors too who once knew bet-ter words /
now only use four let-ter words /
wri-ting prose /
Any-thing goes /

The world has gone mad to-day /
and good’s bad to-day /
and black’s white to-day /
and day’s night to-day /
When most guys to-day /
that wo-men prize to-day /
are just sil-ly gi-go-los /

And though I’m not a great ro-mancer /
I know that I’m bound to an-swer /
when you pro-pose /
Any-thing goes /

When grand-ma-ma whose age is eigh-ty /
in night clubs is get-ting ma-tey with gi-go-los /
Any-thing goes /

When mo-thers pack and leave poor fa-ther /
be-cause they de-cide they’d ra-ther be ten-nis pros /
Any-thing goes /

If driving fast cars you like /
if low bars you like /
if old hymns you like /
if bare limbs you like /
if Mae West you like /
or me un-dressed you like /
Why / no-body will op-pose /

When every night /
the set that’s smart /
is in-tru-ding in nu-dist par-ties in stu-di-os /
Any-thing goes /

The world has gone mad to-day /
and good’s bad to-day /
and black’s white to-day /
and day’s night to-day /
when most guys to-day /
that wo-men prize to-day /
are just sil-ly gi-go-los /

And though I’m not a great ro-man-cer /
I know that I’m bound to an-swer /
when you pro-pose /
Any-thing goes /

If say-ing your prayers you like /
if green pears you like /
if old chairs you like /
if back stairs you like /
if love affairs you like /
with young bears you like /
Why no-body will op-pose /

And though I’m not a great ro-man-cer /
I know that I’m bound to an-swer /
when you pro-pose /
Any-thing goes /
Any-thing goes!

I get a Kick out of You

I get a Kick out of You
Music by Cole Porter
Lyrics by Cole Porter
1934

My sto-ry is much too sad to be told /
but prac-tic-ally eve-ry-thing /
leaves me to-tal-ly cold /
The on-ly ex-cep-tion I know is the case /
when I’m out on a quiet spree /
figh-ting vain-ly the old en-nui /
and I sud-den-ly turn and see /
your fa-bu-lous face /

I get no kick from Cham-pagne /
Mere al-co-hol does-n’t thrill me at all /
so tell me why should it be true /
that i get a kick out of you /

Some get a kick from co-caine /
I’m sure that if I took ev-en one sniff /
that would bore me ter-ri-fic-ly too /
yet I get a kick out of you /

I get a kick eve-ry time I see you /
stan-ding there be-fore me /
I get a kick though it’s clear to me /
you ob-vi-ous-ly don’t a-dore me /

I get no kick in a plane /
Fly-ing too high with some gal in the sky /
is my i-dea of no-thing to do /
Yet I get a kick / out of you!

妳帶給我欣喜

中文翻譯 : 李明龍 Lee Ming-lung

我的身世甚為悲戚難道
但實際上每件事
都令我徹底倦怠
唯一我所知的例外是那回
我在外獨自醺酩
無法從倦怠自拔時
無意中轉身看見妳
天仙的面龐

我並不喜歡香檳
酒飲完全無法讓我興奮
那請告訴我為什麼
妳能夠帶給我欣喜

有人沉迷於柯鹼
我知道縱使是只吸一口
也會令我厭膩至極的
但 妳給我帶來欣喜

我欣喜油生 — 只要見到妳
站在我的面前
我很欣喜 — 雖然我明知
妳很顯然地並不愛我

我無意於打高空
和女孩逍魂虛無飄渺中
對於我只是消磨時光
但妳帶給我 — 那欣喜

Night and Day


Sung by Fred Astaire

Night and Day
Music by Cole Porter
Lyrics by Cole Porter
1932

Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom /
when the jun-gle sha-dows fall /
Like the tick tick tock of the state-ly clock /
as it stands against the wall /
Like the drip drip drip of the rain-drops /
when the sum-mer show-er is through /
So a voice wi-thin me keeps re-pea-ting / you you you /

Night and day / you are the one /
On-ly you be-neath the moon / and un-der the sun /
Whe-ther near to me or far /
It’s no mat-ter dar-ling / where you are /
I think of you /

Night and day / day and night / why is it so /
That this long-ing for you / fol-lows wher-ever I go /
In the roa-ring traf-fic’s / boom /
In the si-lence of my / lone-ly room /
I think of you /

Night and day / night and day /
Un-der the hide of me /
There’s an oh such a hun-gry year-ning / bur-ning in-side of me /
And this tor-ment won’t be through /
’til you let me spend my life ma-king love to you /
Day and night / night and day!
