A Song For You – The Carpenters

I’ve been so many places in my life and time

I’ve sung a lot of songs I’ve made some bad rhyme

I’ve acted out my love in stages

With ten thousand people watching

But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you



I know your image of me is what I hope to be

I’ve treated you unkindly but darlin’ can’t you see

There’s no one more important to me

Darlin’ can’t you please see through me

Cause we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you



(*) You tought me precious secrets of the truth withholding nothing

You came out in front and I was hiding

But now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together

Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding

(**) I love you in a place where there’s no space or time

I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine

And when my life is over remember when we were together

We were alone and I was singing this song for you


Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

We were alone and I was singing this song for you

You – The Carpenters

You are the one who makes me happy

When everything else turns to grey

Yours is the voice that wakes me mornings

And sends me out into the day

You are the crowd that sits quiet

Listening to me

And all the mad sense that I make



(*) You are one of the few things worth remembering

And since it’s all true

How could anyone mean more to me

Than you



Sorry if sometimes I look past you

There’s no one beyond your eyes

Inside my head whells are turning

Hey, sometimes I’m not so wise

You are my heart and my soul

My inspiration

Just like the old love song goes



Repeat (*)



You’re my heart and my soul

My inspiration

Just like the old song goes



Repeat (*)

Yesterday Once More – The Carpenters

When I was young

I’d listened to the radio

Waitin’ for my favorite songs

Waiting they played I’d sing along

It made me smile



Those were such happy times

And not so long ago

How I wondered where they’d gone

But they’re back again

Just like a long lost friend

All the songs I loved so well



(*) Every Sha-la-la-la

Every Wo-wo-wo

Still shines

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

That they’re starting to sing’s

So fine



When they get to the part

Where he’s breakin’ her heart

It can really make me cry

Just like before

It’s yesterday once more



Lookin’ back on how it was

In years gone by

And the good times that I had

Makes today seem rather sad

So much has changed



It was songs of love that

I would sing to then

And I’d memorize each word

Those old melodies

Still sound so good to me

As they melt the years away



Repeat (*)



All my best memories

Come back clearly to me

Some can even make me cry

Just like before

It’s yesterday once more



Repeat (*)

Sailing On The Tide – The Carpenters

Here I am feeling confined

Neon lights are making me blind

I need time out in the sunshine

The city and me just don’t agree

On who I should be

Maybe I should get away

Take myself a holiday



No more calls begging my time

No more walls for me to climb

I can’t wait to feel the sunshine

Leaving at down

After I’m gone life go on

Someone’s gonna take my place

Runnin’n in the human race



(*) Sailing on the tide in the morning

Now I love that salty air

Sailing to the wide horizon

Let the fresh winds

Guide us there

Maybe if you feel like it, too

You might like to make the run

Sailing over the ocean

To my beautiful island in the sun



Over there people are slow

Low key life is all that they know

Lying around high on the sunshine

Lazy lagoons warm afternoons

Tropical moons

Sleepy beaches everywhere

Anyone is welcome there



Make no plans play it by ear

Could be days maybe a year

I’m gonna be free in the sunshine

Takin’ my time tryin’ to find

Some peace of mind

Nothin’s gonna hurry me

Nothin’s gonna worry me



Repeat (*)



Sailing on the wide horizon

Let the fresh winds

Guide us there

Maybe if you feel like it, too

You might like to make the run

Sailing over the ocean

To my beatiful island in the sun

O Come, O Come Emmanuel – The Carpenters

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel



O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

And ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

Until the Son of God appears

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

Jambalaya – The Carpenters

Good-bye Joe, he gotta go, me oh my oh

He gotta go-pole the pirogue down the bayou

His Yvonne the sweetest one, me oh my oh

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Thibodaux, Fontaineaux the place is buzzin’

A Kin-folk come to see Yvonne by the dozen

Dress in style the go hog wild, me oh my oh

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



(*) Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo

Cause tonight, I’m gonna see my ma cher a mi-o

Pick guitar, fill fruit far and be gay-o

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Settle down far from town get him a pirogue

And he’ll catch all the fish in the bayou

Swap his mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o

Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou



Repeat (*)

I met him on a Monday and my heart stood still

Da doo ron ron ron

Da doo ron ron

Somebody told me that his name was Bill

Da doo ron ron ron

Da doo ron ron



Yeah, my heart stood still

And when he walked me home

Da doo ron ron ron

Da doo ron ron



Yeah, he looked so fine

Yeah, I’ll make him mine

And when he walked me home

Da doo ron ron ron

Da doo ron ron



Yeah da doo ron ron

Da doo ron ron ron

Yeah da doo ron ron

Da doo ron ron ron

Da doo ron ron

B’wana She No Home – The Carpenters

Don’t you ever invite your boyfriend here

I like to be here alone

You just answer the door and feed the deer

And fight the telephone

Got to learn these words and I know you will

Or I’ll send you right back to Guayaquil

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home



Got to peel your eyes for the heat my dear

You got to froth and foam

Got to send away the mad puppeteer

Who seems to think this is home

I want you to speak the English right

I want you to smile and be polite

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home



I don’t care if you drive my 350 honey

Don’t let’em steal my chrome

I don’t care if you spend all my money honey

Long as you leave me alone

I just want you to try and remember one thing

If somebody knocks or the telephone rings

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home

Say b’wana she no home, say b’wana she no home
