Blue Danube

Danube so blue (so blue, so blue)
As onward you flow (as onward you flow)
My heart is with you (my heart's with you)
Wherever you go (wher'ere you go)
From out of the West (from out of the West)
You roll to the sea (you roll to sea)
And floating at rest, on your breast (on your breast)
Is where I would always be.

As you roll along, I can hear your song,
It enthrals me and it calls me.
I come down to you as a lover who
Heard your voice and fell beneath your spell.

I come because I know,
As your waters gently flow
Ever onward night and day,
They will carry my sighs and tears away.

At night when the moon is above,
You whisper a lullaby
It's you, only you that I love,
For you alone I sigh.

Your shining silver band,
Reaching far across the land,
In my dreams I seem to see
And you've stolen my heart away from me.

Oh, Danube, blue, blue, Danube.

Danube so blue
As onward you flow
My heart is with you
Wherever you go
From out of the west
You roll to the sea
And floating at rest, on your breast
Is where I would always be.

Roses from the South  
The summer time is in it's prime,
The sun is high in heaven,
The world is decked with flowers fair,
And perfume laden is the air,
The bees all hum, sleep overcome,
From dawn 'til twilight's close,
Sipping each flower in field and bower,
Then linger on the lovely rose,
Sipping each flower in field and bower,
Then linger on the lovely rose.

The song birds are soaring,
Merry madrigals are ringing clear,
Their love songs outpouring
To the beautiful rose so dear.

Night air is still, stars gleam while Nature reposes,
Nightingales trill their passionate songs to the roses.

The summer time is in it's prime,
The sun is high in heaven,
The world is decked with flowers fair,
And perfume laden is the air,
The bees all hum, sleep overcome,
From dawn 'til twilight's close,
Sipping each flower in field and bower,
Then linger on the lovely rose,
Sipping each flower in field and bower,
Then linger on the lovely rose.

Rose entrancing, token of love, from heaven above,
Fragrant flower, thrilling this heart of mine,
We adore thee, haste not away, O longer stay,
Queen of flowers make this life of ours divine.

Dreams of Delight  
Dreams of delight, come with the Night,
Dream 'til tomorrow, brings back the light
Gone are the grey cares of the day.
Sadness and sorrow stealing away.
Goodnight Vienna  
Goodnight Vienna, you city of a million melodies,
Our hearts are thrilling to the strains that you play,
From dawn 'til the daylight dies.
Goodnight Vienna, where moonlight fills the air with mysteries,
And eyes are shining to the gypsy guitars
That sing to the starry skies.

Enchanted city of Columbine and Pierrot,
We know the magic of your spell,
Of our romances you're the hero,
Now is the time to say farewell.

Goodnight Vienna, you city of a million melodies,
Our hearts are thrilling to the strains that you play,
From dawn 'til the daylight dies.
Goodnight Vienna, where moonlight fills the air with mysteries,
And eyes are shining to the gypsy guitars
That sing to the starry skies.

Enchanted city of Columbine and Pierrot,
We know the magic of your spell,
Of our romances you're the hero,
Now is the time to say farewell.

Goodnight Vienna, now lovers kiss beneath your linden trees,
The world is waiting on the edge of the day,
Just waiting to say Goodnight!
