Funny You Should Say That (c) 1974 ABC/Dunhill Music Inc, Soldier Music Inc. by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter

Lead Vocal: Evette, Miriam

I got up early this morning
I guess I just couldn't sleep
All my arrangements are made
I've got appointments to keep
The chairs and tables are covered
I took our name off the doors
That's what you told me to do
But you can't carry it through, anymore

Funny you should say that baby
Tell me, did you read my mind
Funny you should say that baby
That's how I felt all the time

I'd like to make a confession
I haven't always been fair
Sometimes I think of myself
before I notice you there

Well I could wait for the taxi
Tell him I just didn't call
That's what you want me to do
Unpack and stay here with you, and roar

Funny you should say that baby
Tell me, did you read my mind?
Funny you should say that baby
That's how I felt all the time

**
Funny you should say that baby
Tell me, did you read my mind?
Funny you should say that baby
That's how I felt all the time

Funny you should say that baby
Tell me did you read my mind?
Funny you should say that baby
That's how I felf all the time

Come Back Baby (c) 2008 In The Mood Music, by Miriam Barab


Come Back Baby
Miriam Barab
(c) 2008 In The Mood Music Co.




Lead Vocal: Miriam


There's a shadow falling over me
And I just can't find my way at all
When you left me you were over me
And I had no net to break the fall

Oh my darling
I still need you
Come back darling do
I see your eyes
I hear your voice
I am always blue

There's a sadness that I can't escape
Though I'd love to leave it far behind
I'm alone now with this empty space
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Can you hear me? I call your name.
Can you feel me cry?
You were my love now I've lost you
I just don't know why.

**

Come back baby, I still love you
Come back darling do
I see your eyes, I hear your voice
I am always blue

There's a longing that I feel for you
And I wonder if you feel it to
Do you ever miss the love we knew
Or ever regret it's over too

Oh my darling, I still need you
Come back darling do
I see your eyes, I hear your voice
I am always blue





I'm alone now with this empty space
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Oh my darling
I still need you
Come back darling, do
I see your eyes
I feel your touch
I am always blue

Oh my baby
I still love you
Come back darling, do.
I hear your voice
I feel your touch
I am always blue

Goodnight My Love

by Jessie Belvin
Lead vocal: Claude

Goodnight my love
pleasant dreams and sleep tight my love
May tomorrow be sunny and bright
and bring you closer to me

Before you go
there's just one thing I'd like to know
if your love is still warm for me
or has it grown cold

If you should awake in the still of the night
please have no fear
for I will be there darling you know I care
please give your love to me dear only

Goodnight my love, pleasant dreams and sleep tight my love
may tomorrow be sunny and bright and bring you closer to me

Goodnight my love
Goodnight my love
Goodnight my love

New York State of Mind (c) 1976 Joelsongs by Billy Joel

Lead vocal: Claude



Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami beach or to Hollywood
I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind



I've seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limosines
Been high in the rockies under the evergreens
I know what I'm needing and I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York State of mind



It was easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take, the New York Times and the Daily News


It comes down to reality and it's find with me cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
Don't have any reasons , I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York State of mind


***

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
but now I need a little give and take
The New York Times and The Daily News

It comes down to reality and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind.

Lead vocals: Evette, Keith, Miriam, Tom, Claude


And I never thought I'd feel this way
and as far as I'm concerned I'm glad I got the chance to say
that believe I love you
and if I should ever go away
well then close your eyes and try
to feel the way we do today
and then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me and now there's so much more I see
and so by the way I thank you
Oh and then for the times that we're apart,
well then close your eyes and know these words are coming from my heart
and then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining, knowing you can always count on me , for sure
that what friends are for
In good times, in bad times I'll be on your side forever more
Oh that what friends are for.........

Oh, oh, oh, oh keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times, and bad times I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Keep smiling, keep shining knowing you can always count on me
that for sure, 'cause I tell you that's what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for.

That's what friends are for, yeah

That's what friends are for

You Can Have Her (c) 1961 by Bill Cook

Lead Vocal: Claude

Well, you can have her,
I don't want her
She didn't love me anyway
She only wanted someone to play with,
but all I wanted was love to stay.
well, when you get stuck with the wrong woman
there's only one thing that you can do
just dig a whole and jump right in it
then pull the ground right over you
Well, you can have her (You Can Have Her)
I don't want her ( I don't want her)
She didn't love me (didn't love me ) anyway (anyway).
She only wanted (only wanted) someone to play with (one yo play with)
but all I wanted (all I Wanted) was love to stay (was love to stay).

The girl I love, she, up and left me.
She ran away with my best friend.
Comes home at night just for an hour
When daylight comes she's gone again.

She didn't love me (she didn't love me) anyway (anyway)
She only wanted (she only wanted) someone to play with (one to play with)
But all I wanted (all I wanted) was love to stay (was love to stay)


Life without love is mighty empty,but confession's good for the soul.
I'd rather have love that I can cling to
Than have the world and all of it's gold.

Anos Dourados (c) 1986 Jobim Music Ltda., Mariola Edicoes Musicais Ltda.

by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico Buarque de Hollanda
Lead Vocals: Miriam,Claude

Parece que dizes
te amo, Maria
Na fotografia
Estamos felizes
Te ligo afobada
E deixo confissoes
no gravador
Va ser engracado
Se tens um novo amor
Me vejo a teu lado
Te amo?
Nao lembro
Parece dezembro
De um ano dourado
Parece bolero
Te quero, te quero
Dizer que nao quero
Teus beijos nunca mais
Teus beijos nunca mais

Nao sei se eu ainda
Te esqueco de fato
No nosso retrato
Pareco tao linda
Te ligo ofegante
E digo confissoes no gravador
E desconcertante
Rever o grande amor

Meus olhos molhados
Insanos, dezembros
Mas quando me lembro
Sao anos dourados
Ainda te quero
Bolero, nossos versos sao banais
Mas como eu espero
Teus beijos nunca mais
Teus beijos nunca mais

The Way You Look Tonight (c) 1936 T.B. Harms Co by Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern.

Lead Vocals; Claude, Miriam

Some day when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
and the way you look tonight

Oh but you're lovely
with your smile so warm
and your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
just the way you look tonight

With each word your tenderness grows
tearing my fear apart
And that laugh that wrinkle your nose
touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it
cause I love you
just the way you look tonight
just the way you look tonight

At The Club (c) 1964 Screen Gems by Carole King and Gerry Goffin

Lead Vocal: Claude

Well, Friday night has finally come around
Me and my baby gonna head for a spot we found
We're gonna forget our cares and dance on into the night
Down at the club (down at the club)
Where everything will be all right (down at the club)
Down at the club we're gonna say that it's all right

For two bits and a dollar
they've got a swinging show for you
and the band won't quit 'til everybody tells them to
and when the play that slow dance you can hold your baby tight
Down at the club (down at the club), where everything is out of sight (down at the club)
Down at the club we're gonna say that it's all right

***

Well, they've got lots of pretty dancing girls for the fellas
Oh, you better look out in case your baby gets jealous
Now some people might like to sit and watch a picture show
Well, if that's what your plans are don't ask me to go

I'll be where the music plays 'til the early morning light
Down at the club (down at the club) where everything is out of sight (down at the club)
Down at the club we're gonna say that it's all right

It's all right (it's all right)
Let me tell you that it's all right (it's all right)
Down at the club we're gonna say that it's all right

City of Angels (c) 1976 Grimora Music Co. by William Griffin and Warren Moore



Walking your seashores and staring in to space
Dreaming of your people that possess your charm and grace
Oh I love you L.A. (City of Angels)
Please don’t go away (Please don’t go) (Please don’t go away)
Will you fall into the sea? (Will you fall into the sea?)
And forsake me.
City of angels you have faults in your land
People say you’ll crumble and your beauty will no longer stand
Oh I love you L.A. (City of Angels)
Please don’t go away (Please don’t go)(Please don’t go away)
Will you fall into the sea? (Will you fall into the sea?)
And forsake me.
Will you disappear from the earth just like Atlantis did?
Each and every night I’ll say a prayer for heaven to forbid
I could never live without you my salvation I would give to you
If you stay (please stay) don’t go away (don’t go away)
Your soft breeze through the palm trees whisper longing goodbyes
Vibrations say you’re fading as the tears nestle in my eyes.
Oh I love you L.A. (City of Angels)
Please don’t go away (Please don’t go) (Please don’t go away)
Will you fall into the sea? (Will you fall into the sea?)
And forsake me.
No please don’t go away
Oh I love you L.A. (City of Angels)
Please don’t go away (Please don’t) (Please don’t go away)
Will you fall into the sea? (Will you fall into the sea?)
And forsake me.
Ahh…….Ahh…..Ah..Ah..Ah
Ahh…….Ahh…..Ah..Ah..Ah

                                                                Be Loved By You)


Lead Vocal; Claude

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion deeply touching my emotion

I want to stop (stop) and thank you baby
I want to stop (stop) and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes it is

Close my eyes at night and I wonder where would I be without you in my life
Everything was just a bore, all the things I've done seems I've done them before
But you brighten up all my days with a love so sweet in so many ways

I want to stop, (stop) and thank you baby
I want to stop, (stop) and thank you baby , hey now

How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes it is baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you

You were better to me than I've been to myself
for me there's you and nobody else

Stop (stop) and thank you baby
I wanna stop (stop) and thank you baby, hey now

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
(It's like sugar and spice baby)
How sweet it is to be loved by you
