If I Only Had Time: John Rowles


Rowlins

If I Only Had Time

Mm mm mm mm ….
If I only had time, only time

So much to do
If I only had time, if I only had time
Dreams to pursue
If I only had time, they’d be mine

Time like the wind
Goes hurrying by and the hours just fly
Where to begin
There are mountains I’d climb if I had time

Since I met you I’ve thought
Life really is too short

Loving you
So many things we could make true
A whole century
Isn’t enough to satisfy me

So much to do
If I only had time, if I only had time
Dreams to pursue
If I only had time, they’d be mine

Mm mm mm mm ….
If I only had time, only time
Mm mm mm mm ….

In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning: Frank Sinatra


In the wee Small Hours of the Morning  (Frank Sinatra)
Writer(s): Mann/Hilliard

When the sun is high in the afternoon sky
you can always find something to do…
But from dusk til dawn as the clock ticks on
something happens to you.

In the wee small hours of the morning
While the whole wide world is fast asleep
You lie awake and think about the girl
And never ever think of counting sheep

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You’d be hers if only she would call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That’s the time you miss her most of all

Ella sings “Stormy Weather” with Joe Pass, Hannover 1975


Stormy Weather

 (Ella Fitzgerald)

Don’t know why, there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor old self together
I’m weary all the time, the time, so weary all of the time

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the lord above will let me
walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all of the time

I walk around heavy-hearted and sad
Night comes around and I’m still feeling bad
Rain pourin’ down, blinding every hope I had
This pitter andd n patter and beating, spattering driving  me mad
Love, love, love, love, the misery will be the end of me

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather, since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Keeps raining all the time

Stormy weather…

Cry Me A River – Ella Fitzgerald


Now you say you’re lonely.
You cry the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river,
Cry me a river..
I cried a river over you.

Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue.
Well, you can cry me a river,
Cry me a river..
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear.
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me.

And now you say you love me.
Well, just to prove that you do..
Come on and cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river… over you…

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

And now.. now you say you love me.
Well, just to prove that you do..
Come on and cry, cry, cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried, I cried, I cried a river over you.

If my pillow talk, imagine what it would have said.
Could it be a river of tears I cried instead?
Well you can cry me a river,
Go ahead and cry me a river
‘Cause I cried, I cried a river over you
How I cried a river over you..
