A
A Big Hunk O'love
(Schroeder - Wyche)

Hey baby I ain't asking much of you
No, no, no, no, no, no baby
I ain't asking much of you
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a
Hunk o'love a-will do
Don't be a stingy little momma
You ‘bout to starve me half to death
Now you could spare a kiss or two
And still have plenty left
No, no, no baby I ain't asking much of you
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a
Hunk o'love a-will do, (a-will do), a-will do, that's right

You're just a natural born beehive
Filled with honey to the top
But I ain't greedy baby
All I want is all you got
No, no, no baby I ain't asking much of you
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a
Hunk o'love a-will do

I got a wish-bone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot around my wrist
And I'd have everything my lucky charm could bring
If you gimme just one sweet kiss
No, no, no baby I ain't asking much of you
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a hunk o'love a-will do, that's right
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a hunk o'love a-will do, that's right
Just a big-a, big-a, big-a hunk o'love a-will do, that's right

A Boy Like Me A Girl Like You
(Tepper / Bennett)

When a boy like me meets a girl like you
Then I must believe wishes come true
I just look at you and I touch your hand
And this ordinary world becomes a wonderland

* There are many girls I have met before
But I passed them by because I knew
There would be this magic moment,
One to last a lifetime through
When a boy like me meets a girl like you

* Repeat

When a boy like me meets a girl like you

A Cane And A High Starched Collar
(Tepper / Bennett)

Cowboy, cowboy marry me
I'll bake you a cherry pie
Well thank you very kindly mam
But I'm too young to die

* Hi-low- dosey-doe
Stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty gal
With a cane and a high starched collar

Cowboy if you'll marry me
I'll be your darling Jenny
Now why should I drink from just one well
When I can drink from twenty

* Repeat

Cowboy, cowboy name the day
July 'd be nice I reckon
Gladly meet you at the church
July the 32nd

* Repeat

You sleep all day and spoon all night
And eat your favourite chow
Then why should I get married mam
That's what I'm doing now

* Repeat

A Dog's Life
(Sid Wayne / Ben Weisman)

If I had my life to live over
I know just what I'd like to be
A pampered pet of a rich brunette
Sitting on my mama's knee
Someone to love me
Someone to care
Rubberduck dubble little fingers through my hair
I need a dog's life
What a life, that's good enough for me
That's good enough for me

If I had a bone to be picking
A picking chicken or a steak
Curled up there in an easy chair
Man, that won't be hard to take
I'll always be faithful
That's what I'd be
Never bite a hand that feeds me, no siree
Just lead a dog's life
What a life
That's good enough for me
That's good enough for me

I'd find me a Fifi la poodle
And lose my noodle over her
I'd chase her 'round, all over town
Just to ruffle up her fur
Nuzzle her muzzle
A hole in her paw
Greatest case of puppy lovin' you ever saw
It's called a dog's life
What a life
That's good enough for me
You heard me say it now
That's good enough for me
That's good enough for me

Allá En El Rancho Grande
(Ramos / Urange / Del Moral)

Allá en el rancho grande
Allá donde vívía
Hablá una rancherita
Que alegre me decía
Que alegre me decía
Te voy hacer unas calzones
comos los que esa el ranchero
Los comenzo de lana
y los acabo de hierro.

Anything That's Part Of You
(Don Robertson)

I memorize the note you sent
Go all the places that we went
I seem to search the whole day through
For anything that's part of you

I kept a ribbon from your hair
A breath of perfume lingers there
It helps to cheer me when I’m blue
Anything that's part of you

Oh, how it hurts to miss you so
When I know you don't love me anymore
To go on needing you
Knowing you don't need me

No reason left for me to live
What can I take, what can I give?
When I’d give all of someone new
For anything that's part of you

Always On My Mind
(James / Carson / Christopher)

Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
And maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have

If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

And maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine

Little things I should have said and done
just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me,
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me,
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
I'll keep you satisfied

And I Love You So
(Don Mclean)

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I’ve lived till now
I tell them I don't know

I guess they understand
How lonley life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand

* And yes I know how lonely life can be
Shadows follow me
And the night won't set me free
But I don't let the evening get me down
Now that you're around me

And you love me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirits free
I'm happy that you do

The book of life is brief
Once the page is read
All but love is dead
This is my belief

* Repeat

America, The Beautiful
(Trad. Arr. by Elvis Presley)

O beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above thy fruited plain

America, America
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

For beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain, majestiesp
Above the fruited plain
America!, America!
God shed His grace, on thee
And crowned thy good, with brotherhood
From sea, to shining sea

America!, America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea, to shining, sea
AMERICA!!!
