____________________________________________ CHANCE to DANCE Come and dance awhile come swing and sway with every step we’ll push the blues so far away they' ll fall into the sky clouds will pass them by and smile Sing a melody Sing a sound with every tune we’ll turn this crazy world around and ‘round ‘til the sun and moon get dizzy watching you and me And when we are moving Starlight fills the air You are the one I love The one who takes me there ____________________________________________

___________________________________________ SURELY, SHIRLEY He’s going crazy slowly but surely and Shirley’s the reason why He wants to tell that girl with the curls how he feels oh but he’s way too shy Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday He gets kind of swirly, like a hurly burley every time he sees her walk by He can’t say a word to that bird he adores ‘cause his tongue is tied Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday He’s going crazy slowly but surely and Shirley’s the reason why But maybe today he will say ”Hey, babe!” and Shirley will stop and say “Hi” Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday Surely, Shirley ____________________________________________

____________________________________________ ARE YE SLEEPIN', MAGGIE? Mirk and rainy is the nicht, there's no' a staum in a' the carry Lichtnin's gleam athwart the lift, and cauld winds drive wi' winters fury. Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie let me in, for loud the linn is howling ower the warlock Craigie. Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank, the rifted wood roars wild and dreary Loud the iron yett does clank, the cry of hoolits mak's me eerie. Chorus Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak, for fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy Cauld's the blast upon my cheek, O rise, O rise my bonnie lady. Chorus She's ope'd the door, she's let him in, she's cuist aside his dreepin plaidie Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind, for Maggie noo I'm an aside ye. Chorus A Noo since your waukin' Maggie, noo since yer waukin' Maggie What care I for hoolits cry, for boortree bank or warlock Craigie Chorus ____________________________________________
