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

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

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!

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!

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!

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.

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

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
9.
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

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

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
12.
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

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.
