The Christmas wine

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:12 Written by

The Christmas wine is in the pot
The Christmas coals are red
I'll spend my day the lover's way
Unwrapping all my gifts in bed

Music John Barry
Original Lyrics: James Goldman

Lightly, let's go joyfully.

Be gay, follow me.

The Lion In Winter

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:09 Written by

Latin text :

Regis regum rectissimi
prope est dies domini,
dies irae et vindictae,

tenebrarum et nebulae
diesque mirabilium
tonitruorum fortium,
dies quoque angustiae,
maeroris ac tristitiae.

English text :

Day of the king most righteous,
The day is nigh at hand,
The day of wrath and vengeance,

And darkness on the land.
Day of thick clouds and voices,
Of mighty thundering,
A day of narrow anguish
And bitter sorrowing.

Music John Barry

Petulia

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:09 Written by

I died today a little more,
But nothing's lost. I've died before.
I played the old forbidden game;
I spoke your name,
Petulia.

The arms closing; the lips parting;
The heart stopping; the chills starting.

Such little things and feather-light:
Your hand in mine, the summer night.
Such little things ... how could they spell
Eternal hell,
Petulia?

The door locking; the keys jingling;
The slow melting; the swift mingling.

But I have lived like many men,
And I am doomed to live again;
A broken toy that none will claim,
Who speaks your name:
Petulia,
Petulia.

My Love Has Two Faces

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:08 Written by

My love has two faces
One false one true.
My love has two faces
Which one is you?

The first night
A warm light
Flickered in your eyes.
The first time you held me
Summer filled my heart.
The first kiss you gave me
Woke a sleeping dream
And I began to scheme
How we would never part.

But love has two faces
One false one true.
Which face are you wearing?
I wish I knew.

Oh, last night
A cold light
Shivered in your glance.
Yes last night
Your cold eyes
Started sudden fear.
That moment my heart felt
Winters icy kiss.
Did I imagine this,
Or can the end be near?

My love has two faces
One false one true.
One lies and one loves me
Which one is you?

Which one is you?

Music John Barry
Lyrics by Jack Lawrence
Performed by Shirley Bassey

You Only Live Twice

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:07 Written by

You Only Live Twice or so it seems
One life for yourself and one for your dreams.
You drift through the years and life seems tame
Till one dream appears and love is its name.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice.

sung by Nancy Sinatra

Wednesday's Child

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:07 Written by

Wednesday's child is a child of woe
Wednesday's child cries alone, I know
When you smiled, just for me you smiled
For a while, I forgot I was Wednesday's child

Friday's child wins at love, they say
In your arms, Friday was my day
Now you're gone -- well, I should have known
I'm Wednesday's child, born to be alone

John Barry

sung by Matt Monro

Born Free

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:06 Written by

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart

Live free, and beauty surronds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star

Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as a roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
Cause you're born free

Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as a roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

John Barry
Don Black
sung by Matt Monro

The Chase

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:06 Written by

Life seems
One big puzzle
Sometimes
I come to the end of me
Some men will always fight
Until they're falling
And crawling
And the chase goes on

Don't know
Where I'm running
Just know
I was born to run the race

The world is tough if you
Just sit and grumble
You crumble
And the chase goes on
