Track Name: Dancing Harry
Arms are flailing in the air,
Feet are going here and there,
But still he looks so debonaire,
Dancing there without a care!

Can you catch his tappin' feet,
He doesn't miss a single beat,
Lookin' like the true elite,
Here comes dancing Harry.

Ladies swoon around the room when Harry takes the floor,
They know a cat like that's got everything they're looking for!

It's Harry, it's dancing Harry!
Take a glance at his fancy pants,
Here comes dancing Harry!

Twist and tango, tap and trot,
Jump and jive and lindy hop,
Balboa, shag, he knows the lot,
He'll never stop, no matter what!

And then you see him improvise
A new routine to your surprise.
You scarcely can believe your eyes -
Here comes dancing Harry!

And if you chance to match his dance you know all bets are off,
Cos Harry's got more complex moves than Garry Kasparov!

It's Harry, it's dancing Harry!
He never slows, from go to whoa,
Here comes dancing Harry!
Track Name: Heebie Jeebies
Well I got those Heebies,
The Heebie Jeebies,
I'm talkin about the Heebie Jeebie dance,
Because they're boys,
Because it pleases me to be joy,

Oh don't you know it,
Don't show it, don't be blue,
Come on I'll teach you
Come on, and do that dance,
It's called the Heebie Jeebies and we'll dance all night,
It's called the Heebie Jeebie dance.
Track Name: Sheik of Araby
I'm the sheik of Araby,
And your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'm gonna creep.

And the stars that shine above,
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
Cos I'm the sheik of Araby.
Track Name: St James Infirmary
I went down to St James Infirmary,
I saw my baby there.
She was all stretched out on a long white table,
So sweet so cold so fair.

Let her go, let her go, God bless her,
Wherever she may be.
You can look this whole world right over,
She ain't never gonna find a sweet old man like me.

When I die, won't you bury me in my best breeches,
A box back coat and a Stetson hat.
Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain,
So the boys know I died standing pat.

Now folks, you've heard my story.
Pour me another shot of that booze.
And if anyone should ask you can tell them:
I got the St James Infirmary Blues!
Track Name: Comin' to Town
What's that sound from across the hill,
Cymbals crash, whistles trill,
Flood the night with big arc lights,
They're building something of considerable height.
Creep out of bed and down the stairs,
Cross the field, Mum and Dad unawares.
Hundreds of carnies running around,
Lions roar, hammers swing and pound.
Big top in the show ground,
The circus is coming to town!

Colourful man with a megaphone:
"Roll up, roll up, leave your troubles at home!"
Girl at the ticket box flashes a smile,
Horses walk by in single file.
Cotton candy and popcorn for me,
Jugglers taunting a man like a tree,
Sawdust and boards and the smell of smoke,
Clown warming up with a silent joke.
Pack all the people right in,
Waiting for the show to begin!
Track Name: His Eye is on the Sparrow
Why should I feel discouraged?
Why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart feel lonely,
And long for heaven home?
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Yes I sing, because I'm happy!
Yes I sing, because I'm free!
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches over me.

In the morning I sing, because I'm happy!
Yes I sing, because I'm free!
Yeah His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He's watchin' over me.
Track Name: I Saw Her Standing There
She was just seventeen,
You know what I mean,
The way she looked was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another,
When I saw her standing there.

Well she looked at me,
And I could see
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
She wouldn't dance with another,
When I saw her standing there.

Well my heart went 'boom',
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine!

Well we danced through the night,
Held eachother tight,
Before too long, I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another,
Since I saw her standing there.

Well my heart went 'boom',
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine!

As we danced through the night,
We held eachother tight,
Before too long, I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another,
Since I saw her, saw her standing there.
Track Name: Sweet Sue
Oh the stars above know the one I love,
Sweet Sue, sweet Sue.

And that moon up high knows the reason why.
Sweet Sue, sweet Sue.

No one else it seems ever shared my dreams,
Without you dear, I don't know what I'd do.

In this heart of mine you'll live all the time,
Sweet Sue, sweet sue.
Track Name: Sweat Patches
I been workin' all day for the minimum pay,
Sortin' and a stackin' for the man.
I been workin' up a sweat and my brow is all wet,
And I been pushin' just as hard as I can.
My face is covered in dirt and my darn feet hurt!
I'm achin' from the effort that I had to exert,
And all I've got to show for it is my own filthy shirt,
Sweat patches rag!

I get home real late, about a quarter to eight,
My lady's waitin' with a tonic and gin.
She says "you're lookin' quite fine, I can't believe that you're mine,
"So won't you hurry up and let yourself in!"
I can't believe what I see, she's acting fancy for me,
Despite my shirt that smells like something died in '93,
She must know I've had a hard day at the library!
Sweat patches rag!

Sweat patches, sweat patches rag!
Stacking books and saying "shoosh!" takes the puff out of me!
Sweat patches rag!
Track Name: La Vie En Rose
Hold me close and hold me fast,
That magic spell you cast,
It is la vie en rose.

When you kiss me, heaven sighs,
And though I close my eyes,
I see la vie en rose.

When you hold me to your heart,
I'm in a world apart,
A world where roses bloom!

And when you speak, angels sing from above.
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs!

Give your heart and soul to me,
And life will always be
La vie en rose!
Track Name: You Rascal You
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you!
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you!
I'll be glad when you're dead,
With six feet right over your head,
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you!

Tell me what have you got, you rascal you!
Tell me what have you got, you rascal you!
Tell me what have you got,
It can't be a lot,
I'll be glad when you're dead you rascal you!

You bought my gal a diamond ring you rascal you!
You bought my gal a diamond ring you rascal you!
You bought my gal a diamond ring,
Just so you could shake your thing.
I'll be glad when you're dead, I'll be glad!

I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you!
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you!
I'll be glad when you're dead,
With six feet right over your head,
I'll be glad, you rascal you!
