Winter Wonderland
Music by Felix Bernard
Lyrics by Dick Smith
1934

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, “Are you married?”
We’ll say, “No man”
But you can do the job, when you’re in town

Later on, we’ll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with Mister Snowman
Yes, until the all the kids knock him down

And later on, we’ll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland
Walking in a winter wonderland

Please don’t take / my sun-shine a-way ]

Bésame Mucho (Kiss me a lot / 深情地親吻我)
Composed by Consuelo Velázquez, Mexican songwriter, at the age of 15
1940

Original Spanish Lyrics

Bésame, bésame mucho
como si fuera esta noche la última vez
Bésame, bésame mucho
que tengo miedo a perderte, perderte después

Quiero tenerte muy cerca,
mirarme en tus ojos, verte junto a mí,
Piensa que tal vez mañana,
yo ya estaré lejos, muy lejos de ti.

翻譯成中文

親吻我,深情地親吻我
就像今晚是我們最後一次
親吻我,深情地親吻我
我害怕失去你從此失去你

我要近近地擁有你,
在你的眼中看到我自己,看到你和我在一起,

想想看,
也許明天我就要遠離,遠遠地離開你

Translated into English

Kiss me, kiss me a lot,
As if tonight were the last time,
Kiss me, kiss me a lot,
For I am afraid of losing you, losing you afterwards.

I want to hold you close,
to see myself in your eyes, to see you next to me,
Thinking that maybe tomorrow
I will already be far, very far from you.

Tea for Two


Sung by unidentified singers, performed by Palace Theater Orchestra

Sung (and danced!) by Nicholle McNiece and Andy McCalman

Dmitri Shostakovich’s 1927 “Tahiti Trot” orchestration of “Tea for Two”

Tea for Two
from the 1925 Broadway musical “No, No, Nanette”
music by Vincent Youmans
Lyrics by Irving Caesar

[ Verse 1:
I’m dis-con-ten-ted / with homes that I’ve ren-ted /
So I have in-ven-ted my own /
Dar-ling / this place is / a love-ly o-a-sis /
Where life’s wea-ry pace is un-known /

Far from the cry of the ci-ty /
Where flow-ers pret-ty / ca-ress the stream /
Co-zy to hide in / to live side by side in /
Don’t let it a-bide in my dream / ]

[ Chorus:
Pic-ture you / u-pon my knee /
Just tea for two / and two for tea /
Just me for you / and you for me / a-lone /

No-body near us / to see us or hear us /
No friends or re-la-tions / on week-end va-ca-tions /
We won’t have it known dear /
That we own a te-le-phone / dear /

Day will break / and you’ll a-wake /
and start to bake /
a su-gar cake / for me to take /
for all the boys / to see /

We will raise a fa-mi-ly /
a girl for you / a boy for me /
Can’t you see / how hap-py we would be! ]

[ Verse 2:
You are re-vea-ling / a plan so ap-pea-ling /
I can`t help but fal-ling for you /
Dar-ling I plan-ned it / can`t you un-der-stand it /
It’s yours to com-mand it / so do /

All of your schemes / I`m ad-mir-ing /
they`re worth de-sir-ing / but can`t you see /
I`d like to wait there / for some fu-ture date dear /
it won`t be too late / dear / for me / ]

Sobre las olas (The Loveliest Night of the Year)


Sung by Pedro Infante, Mexican actor and singer

Orchestral performance by the Berliner Symphoniker, conducted by Robert Stolz

Piano solo by Waldteufel78, Swiss pianist

Sobre las olas (Over the Waves)
Music by Juventino P. Rosas, Mexican composer
1888

Spanish Lyrics as sung by Pedro Infante:

[ Chorus:
En la inmensidad, de las olas flotando te vi
y al irte a salvar, por tu vida la vida perdí.
Tu dulce visión, en mi alma indeleble grabo
la tierna pasión, que la dicha y la paz me robo.]

Si dentro de mi dolor, tu refugio llegara a turbar
te seguire con amor, note niegues mujer a escuchar.
El viento te llevara, los gemidos de mi corazon
y siempre repetirá, los acentos de mi canción.

La tempestad en su furia del mar
y del relámpago en duro fragor
solo podrán débilmente escuchar
la tempestad que hay aquí con tu amor.

Por doquiera que voy, tu recuerdo es mi guía
en la noche es mi fe, pues mi sol en el dia.
Mi suspiro es mi ideal, o mi acervo dolor
mi doliente quebranto, es por ti por tu amor.

Con mi gemido, te envió el corazon
y en mis ojos, te mando mi ser.
Mas no, no quiero de ti compasión
yo quiero amor, o por el perecer.

[ Chorus ]

Google Machine Translation into English:

[ Chorus:
In the vastness of the waves I saw you floating
and went to save you, for your life lost life.
Your sweet vision, recorded indelibly in my soul
the tender passion, the joy and peace I stole. ]

If in my pain, your refuge came to disturb
I will follow you with love, not neglect to listen to you woman.
The wind will take you, the groans of my heart
and always repeated, the accents of my song.

The tempest in its fury the sea
The lightning and thunder are loud
But I can only faintly hear
the storm in here with your love.

Everywhere I go, your memory is my guide
at night it is my faith, in the day it is my sun.
My breath is my ideal, or my pain shared
my aching grief, is for you for your love.

With my groaning, I sent you my heart
and in my eyes, I sent my being.
But no, you do not want pity
I want to love, or perish.

[ Chorus ]

The Loveliest Night of the Year
Musical adaptation by Irving Aaronson
English lyrics by Paul Francis Webster
1950

When you are in love / It’s the love-li-est night of the year /
Stars twin-kle a-bove / And you al-most can touch them from here /
Words fall into rhyme / A-ny-time you are hol-ding me near /
When you are in love / It’s the love-li-est night of the year /

[ Chorus:
Walt-zing a-long in the blue / Like a breeze drif-ting o-ver the sand /
Thrilled by the won-der of you / And the won-der-ful touch of your hand /
And my heart starts to beat / Like a child when a birth-day is near /
So kiss me my sweet / It’s the love-li-est night of the year / ]

[ Instrumental:
When you are in love / It’s the love-li-est night of the year /
Stars twin-kle a-bove / And you al-most can touch them from here /
Words fall into rhyme / A-ny-time you are hol-ding me near /
When you are in love / It’s the love-li-est night of the year / ]
