Track Name: Beyond the Sea
Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing
Somewhere beyond the sea
He's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to his arms I'd go sailing
It's far beyond a star
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just like before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailing
Track Name: I'd Rather Be Sailing
I’d rather be sailing
Yes, I would
On an open sea
I'd stand at the railing
If I could
Feeling wild and free

The sun is on my neck
The wind is in my face
The water's incredibly blue

And I'd rather be sailing
Yes, I'd wanna go sail
And then come home to you

Love is good but I'd rather be sailing
Food is nice but I'd rather be sailing
People are swell but I'd rather be sailing
Over the horizon
And I'd rather be sailing
Yes, I would
On an open sea
I'd stand there inhaling
If I could
Feeling wild and free

The sun is on my neck
The wind is in my face
The sea is incredibly blue
And I'd rather be sailing
Yes, I'd wanna go sail
And then come home to you
Track Name: By the Sea
By the sea, Mr. Todd, that's the life I covet,
By the sea, Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you'd love it!
You and me, Mr. T, we could be alone
In a house wot we'd almost own,
Down by the sea!
Wouldn't that be smashing?

With the sea at our gate, we'll have kippered herring
Wot have swum to us straight from the Straits of Bering!
Ev'ry night, in the kip, when we're through our kippers,
I'll be there slippin' off your slippers!
By the sea,
With the fishies splashing!
By the sea!
Wouldn't that be smashing?

I can hear us wakin',
The breakers breakin','
The seagulls squawkin',
'Hoo, hoo!'
I do me bakin’,
Then I go walkin'
With you-hoo!
Yoo-hoo!
I'll warm me bones on the esplanade,
Have tea and scones with me gay young blade,
Then I'll knit a sweater
While you write a letter
Unless we've got better to do-hoo!

Think how snug it'll be underneath our flannel
When it's just you and me and the English Channel!
In our cozy retreat kept all neat and tidy,
We'll have chums over ev'ry Friday!
By the sea!
Don'tcha love the weather?
By the sea!
We'll grow old together!
By the seaside,
Hoo, hoo!

It'll be so quiet,
That who'll come by it,
Except a seagull
Hoo, hoo!
We shouldn't try it,
Though, 'til it's legal for two-hoo!
But a seaside wedding could be devised,
Me rumpled bedding legitimized!
Me eyelids'll flutter,
I'll turn into butter,
The moment I mutter I do-hoo!
By the sea, in our nest, we could share our kippers
With the odd payin' guest from the weekend trippers,
Have a nice sunny suite for the guest to rest in,
Now and then, you could do the guest in!
By the sea,
Married nice and proper!
By the sea,
Bring along your chopper!
To the seaside,
Hoo, hoo!
By the beautiful sea!
Track Name: The Sea Air
I can smell the sea air. Ah, the sea!
The blessedest thing that God created in the seven days.
The rest of my days I’m going to spend on the sea.
And when I die, I’m going to die there on the sea.
One day out on the ocean, I will die.
I will die – with my hand in the hand of some good-looking nice ship’s doctor, with a small blond mustache.
And he’ll have a silver watch and he’ll look at me.
And he’ll look at his silver watch and sadly say: “Poor lady!”
I’ll be buried at sea, dropped overboard.
Sewn up in a clean white shroud.
At the stroke of noon, iin the blaze of the summer, into an ocean as blue as my first love’s eyes!
Track Name: The Sea of Life
On the sea of life
Travelers all are we
At its mercy, to and fro
Where it takes us, there we'll go.
Tides may ebb and tides may flow,
yet steady stays the sea.

I'll do what I believe and pray prevail.
I'll stay fast to my course, succeed or fail,
And give my faith this night
To this, the sea we sail.

On the sea of life
Travelers all are we
At its mercy, to and fro
Where it takes us, there we'll go.
Tides may ebb and tides may flow,
yet steady stays the sea

I'm at home with the wind on my face!
I've a place as a woman upon the sea!
And this moment in time,
Won't be taken from me!
Track Name: How Far I'll Go
I've been staring at the edge of the water
'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why.
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try.
Every turn I take, every trail I track,
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know where I can not go, where I long to be.
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me.
And no one knows how far it goes.
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me,
One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go.

I know everybody on this island seems so happy on this island.
Everything is by design.
I know everybody on this island has a role on this island.
So maybe I can roll with mine.
I can lead with pride. I can make us strong.
I'll be satisfied if I play along.
But the voice inside sings a different song.
What is wrong with me?
See the light as it shines on the sea? It's blinding.
But no one knows how deep it goes
And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me.
And let me know what's beyond that line. Will I cross that line?
The line where the sky meets the sea. It calls me.
And no one knows how far it goes.
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know how far I'll go.
Track Name: Under the Sea
The seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there, but that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you. Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you. What more are you looking for?

Under the sea, under the sea
Darling it's better down where it's wetter. Take it from me.
Up on the shore they work all day. Out in the sun they slave away
While we’re devotin' full time to floatin'
Under the sea

Down here all the fish are happy, as off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain't happy, they’re sad 'cause they’re in the bowl
But fish in the bowl are lucky. They’re in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry, guess who will be on the plate?

Under the sea, under the sea
Nobody beat us, fry us and eat us in fricassee
We’re what the land folk love to cook, under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles, life is the bubbles

Under the sea, under the sea
Since life is sweet here, we got the beat here, naturally
Even the sturgeon and the ray, they get the urge and start to play
We got the spirit. You gotta hear it
Under the sea

The newt play the flute, the carp play the harp
The plaice play the bass and they’re soundin' sharp
The bass play the brass, the chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul

The ray he can play the lings on the strings
The trout rockin' out, the blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat, they know where it's at
And oh that blowfish blow

Under the sea, under the sea
When the sardine begin the beguine, it's music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand.
We got a hot crustacean band
Each little clam here knows how to jam here under the sea
Each little slug here, cuttin' a rug here under the sea
Each little snail here knows how to wail here
That's why it's hotter under the water
Ya we’re in luck here sown in the muck here under the sea
Track Name: Boat on the River
Take me back to my boat on the river
I need to go down, I need to come down
Take me back to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out any more

Time stands still as I gaze in her waters
She eases me down, touching me gently
With the waters that flow past my boat on the river
So I don't cry out anymore

Oh, the river is wise
The river, it touches my life like the waves on the sand
And all roads lead to Tranquility Base
Where the frown on my face disappears

Take me down to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out anymore

Oh, the river is deep
The river, it touches my life like the waves on the sand
And all roads lead to Tranquility Base
Where the frown on my face disappears, whoa

Take me down to my boat on the river
I need to go down, won't you let me go down
Take me back to my boat on the river
And I won't cry out anymore
And I won't cry out anymore
And I won't cry out anymore
Track Name: Cry Me a River
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
'Cause 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?
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
And now you say, you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
'Cause I cried a river over you
Track Name: Lazy River
I like lazy weather
I like lazy days
Can’t be blamed for having lazy ways

Some old lazy river
Sleeps beside my door
Whispering to the sun lit shore

Up a lazy river by the old mill run
That lazy, lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger in the shade of a kind old tree
Throw away your troubles
Dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Awakes the bright new morning
We can loaf along
Blue skies up above, everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, how happy we could be
Up a lazy river with me
Track Name: Moon River
Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Track Name: Bridge Over Troubled Water
When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Track Name: Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini
She was afraid to come out of the locker.
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of the locker.
She was afraid that somebody would see.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!
It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay.
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more!

She was afraid to come out in the open.
And so a blanket around her she wore.
She was afraid to come out in the open.
And so she sat bundled up on the shore.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!
It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.
So in the blanket she wanted to stay.
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more!

Now she is afraid to come out of the water.
And I wonder what she's gonna do.
'Cause she's afraid to come out of the water.
And now the poor little girl's turning blue.

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!
It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini.
So in the water she wanted to stay.
From the locker to the blanket,
From the blanket to the shore,
From the shore to the water.
Guess there isn't any more.
