(What A) Wonderful World

Don't know much about history,
don't know much biology.
Don't know much about a science book,
don't know much about the French I took.
But I do know that I love you,
and I know that if you love me, too,
what a wonderful world this would be.

Don't know much about geography,
don't know much trigonometry.
Don't know much about algebra,
don't know what a slide rule is for.
But I did know that one and one is two,
and if this one could be with you,
what a wonderful world this would be.

Chorus:
Now I don't claim to be an 'A' student,
but I'm tryin' to be.
For maybe be being an 'A' student, baby,
I can win your love for me.

Verse 1

Don't know much about history,
don't know much biology.
Don't know much about a science book,
don't know much about the French I took.
But I do know that I love you,
and I know that if you love me, too,
what a wonderful world this would be.

But I do know that I love you,
and I know that if you love me, too,
what a wonderful world this would be.

Grandma

I've got a special friend
That I see each day
We like to sit and talk
Sometimes we just play
Do you know who I'm talkin' about
Gonna let my secret out
Grandma, that's who

Chorus:
Grandma always takes the time
To make this young boy feel so fine
She's got her special ways
To chase the clouds away
And make the sun come out to shine
Grandma I'm glad that you're mine

When I head on out to school
She waves goodbye
And of course on Sunday nights
There's apple pie
I love the stories so
Of the days long ago
Grandma, I love you

Chorus

Grandma I'm glad that you're mine
Grandma I'm glad that you're mine

We're Off To The Rodeo

Chorus:
We're off to the rodeo
To watch the cowboy show
The thing that makes them different
Than what we've grown to know
'Cause they'll take their knocks
And get back up and try all over again
The cowboy's worst enemy
Is also his best friend

There's monster trucks and broncin' bucks
And mean old Brahma bulls
Calf ropin', hog tying
And chuck wagon pulls
He's got pretty girls by his side
Everywhere he goes
Cowboy stuff ain't all that bad
Only during the show

Chorus

Well, the days are long on the summer tour
They never seem to end
Cowboy's always waitin'
For his hurts to mend
There is special days every now and then
He rides the pain away
With twists and bends he whups his friends
And takes home the pay

Chorus

All I Have Is A Dream

I wake up every morning
With these memories in my head
I think of you all the time
But most of all in bed

These old dreams that I'm having, having
Each and every night
Are just the things I've learned to do
'Cause I can't hold you tight

Chorus:
I wake up every morning
With the fever and the cold
I've tossed and turned all night long
Together we'd be bold
But all I have is a dream

Yesterday I woke up
Thought I was drownin' in the rain
Tears runnin' down my cheeks
Reminders of the pain

My young heart's a yearning, yearning
To find a way
To make all my dreams come true
And hold you tight each day

Chorus

These dreams I have are special
'Cause a dream can come true
Yes, these dreams I have are special
'Cause when I dream
I dream that I'm with you

These old dreams in my head
May never go away
Runnin' around in my mind
Till nighttime turns to day

My young heart's a yearnin', yearnin'
To find a way
To make all my dreams come true
And hold you tight each day

Chorus

Yes, but all I have is a dream
Yes, but all I have is a dream

Itty Bitty Smile

She's got that itty bitty smile
Makes my heart go wild
And I feel like a puppet on a string
I'd surely walk a mile
Even change my style
In fact, I'd do almost anything
But I'm just too shy
To give it a try
And there's this long way to bring
My itty bitty heart under control
And give that girl a ring

Chorus:
Yes, that itty bitty girl with that itty bitty smile
Makes my heart go wild
But I just can't find the right place or time
To ask that girl of mine

Well, today at school you know I felt like a fool
When I blew that girl a kiss
Man she never even looked
She just grabbed her books
And she was gone along with my wish
Yeah, my heart was broke and that ain't no joke
'Cause that girl she's such a dish
But my itty bitty smile starts my itty bitty heart
Lovin' that girl again

Chorus

Now I stayed in my room
But saw doom and gloom
From the pain I tried to hide
There's got to be a way for me to say
What I feel deep down inside
But I fear the pain'll be more o' the same
And I'll never stem the tide
Cause that itty bitty girl with that itty bitty smile
Is always on my mind

Chorus

If she only knew what she meant to me
I know for sure that y'all would see
An itty bitty girl with that itty bitty smile
Sittin' right next to me

Bird Dog

Johnny is the joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is the joker that's been tryin' to steal my baby (he's a bird dog)

Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (you ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me it's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy love my baby (he's a bird dog)

Chorus:
Hey bird dog, get away from my quail
Hey bird dog, you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey dove alone
Hey bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
He tip-toed up to reach her (he's a bird)
Well, he's the teachers pet now (he's a dog)
What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby

Chorus

I Think I'm Falling In Love

I think Iím falling in love
With the girl next door
ĎCause Iím getting the kind of feeling
That Iíve never had before
Itís running through my fingers
Itís tickling my toes
My bodyís feeling all messed up
And my heart is yelling whoa

Dad, tell me, is this what itís like to fall in love?
Dad, tell me, is this what itís like to fall in love?

Each and every night
I see her in my dreams
Sheís the prettiest girl
That Iíve ever seen
Iíd like to take her for a walk
And hold onto her hand
Watch the birds fly above
And make castles in the sand

Dad, tell me, is this what itís like to fall in love?
Dad, tell me, is this what itís like to fall in love?

Dogs is Dogs

Dogs is dogs
Chickens is chickens
You can break my heart
But it keeps on ticking away
Canít you hear what say
You can play your game
But this old dog donít play

A hog is a hog
A guinea is a guinea
Your old love
It ainít worth a penny to me
If you could only see
That this old dog donít need your company
Why donít you leave my heart alone

Chorus:
I donít roll over
Donít fetch no bone
I donít need your love now anyhow
Ainít you got better things to do
Than try and make me act for you
I donít dance no jig and honey
I donít chase nobodyís cow
A snake is a snake
A lizard is a lizard
Loving youís a lot like sleeping in blizzard alone
Lord, I wish you were gone
Well you can keep on playing
But I ainít playing along
Why donít you leave my heart alone
I donít roll over
Donít fetch no bone

Chorus

Well you can keep on playing
But this time I ainít playing along

Do Wah Diddy Diddy

There she was just a-walkin' down the street,
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
snappin' her fingers and shufflin' her feet,
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
She looked good, LOOKED GOOD
she looked fine, LOOKED FINE
she looked good, she looked fine
and I nearly lost my mind.

Before I knew it she was walkin' next to me.
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
Holdin' my hand just as natural as can be,
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
We walked on, WALKED ON
to my door, MY DOOR
we walked on to my door,
then we kissed a little more.

Chorus:
Wo-o-o-oh, I knew we were falling in love,
yes I did, and so I told her all the things
that I'd been dreamin' of.
Now we're together nearly every single day,
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
We're so happy and that how we're gonna stay,
singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
I'm hers, I'M HERS
she's mine, SHE'S MINE
I'm hers, she's mine,
wedding bells are gonna chime.

Chorus

Singin' do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do,
do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do,
do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do.
