April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Year 1920

Words by Leo Wood
Music by Nat and Jack Shilkret

Leo Fiest Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
When the whole world seems so drear, And above dark clouds appear, And your heat seems filled with fear, Don't feel sad and blue; Think how nice it soon will be, When the sun shines cheerfully, Try it and I know you'll see What I say is true!

Second Verse
Happiness was meant for you, Seek it and you'll find it too, Then your life will start a new, Wonderful 'twill be; Sorrow was not meant to stay, Just to come and go away Tho' it finds us all some day, Still you'll surely see:

Chorus
April showers bring May flowers, And sweet bowers, where roses twine; Now I know too, I can show you, That it's so too all the time, If the sunshine came at one time, All the fun time would soon be through; April showers bring May flowers, So just wait 'till love comes to you.

She's Dancing Her Heart Away

Year 1914

Words by L. Wolfe Gilbert
Music by Kerry Mills

  First Verse
Who is that beauty that's right over there, Dancing with, so much emotion WOnderful eyes and such beautiful hair, Do you think that she's all devotion? Just look at that smile on her face, The truth is, it's much out of place for

Second Verse
Melody seems to enchant her each night, Healing a heart that was broken, Dancing just seems to make everything right, Grief that has never been spoken. It's often that you heard them say, "If you dance, the fiddler you pay," for

Chorus
She'd only one of many Who's dancing her heart away, Each smile is a hidden tear drop, She's acting like in a play, There's many a dance dancing, Though she may seem happy and gay, Her heart it has yearned for a love that was spurned, She's dancing her heart away.

I'm On My Way To Mandalay

I'm On My Way To Mandalay

Year 1913

Words by Al. Bryan
Music by Fred Fisher

Leo Fiest Inc.
Feist Building
New York City

  First Verse
One I love, far away, far away, far away, Land of Love, Mandalay Mandalay, Mandalay, Where the waving trees kiss the ocean breeze In a garden fair, 'mid the roses there, I'm goin' to find someone who waits for me across the sea.

Second Verse
All night long, by the sea, by the sea, by the sea, Her love song Rings for me, rings for me, rings for me, All the world will seem just a lovely dream, And I'll never stray far from Mandalay, I'll live for one who lives alone for me in days to be.

Chorus
I'm on my way to Mandalay, Beneath the shelt'ring palms I want to stray, Oh, let me live and love for aye, On that Island far away; I'm sentimental for my Oriental love, so sweet and gentle, That's why I'm on my way to Mandalay, I've come to say "Good-bye."

Fate

Fate

Year 1922

By Byron Gay

M. Witmark and Sons
  First Verse
Since the world began It seems that man, no matter what his lot, he lays the blame on fate Health his wealth his fame Disgrace or shame, it's all the same, He lays the blame upon his fate All things small or great Life or death its fate.

Second Verse
Truth can never fail It must prevail, in all we do we must be true or live a lie Fate is all there is It's your ideas, for what you think Is what you are, the same as I Think what love commands And fate is in your hands My

Chorus
Fate is all that I am My fate is the law above When fate seems wrong, it's a sham The law that is real is love Fate is our love for each other, Love, as I learned from my mother, Fate is a love that is true, So I knew it was fate when I first met you.

Climb A Tree With Me

Climb A Tree With Me

Year 1912

By Chas. K. Harris

Chas. K. Harris
Columbia Theatre Building
Broadway and 47th St.
New York

  First Verse
I've come to see the little girl, I loved from year to year, I've come to watch each little curl, That made your head so dear. Let's go out to the orchard where, we roamed in childish glee, There's something I would tell you if, you'll climb a tree with me.

Second Verse
I've left the nosiy city with, its heart-aches and its strife, To make you happy sweetheart in, The noon time of your life. Success was hard to win my dear, at last it came to me, I'll tell you all about it if, you'll climb the same old tree.

Chorus
Oh come and climb a tree with me, As we climbed long years a-go, All the birds sang birdie words, And they meant "I love you so." From care let's flee and climb a tree, If you slip I'll hold your hand, So let's climb a tree, you and me, And dream of baby land.
