01. Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries

Life is just a bowl of cherries

Don't take it serious,

Life's too mysterious

You work,

You save,

You worry so

But you can't take your dough

When you go, go, go

So keep repeating "It's the berries."

The strongest oak must fall

The sweet things in life

To you were just loaned

So how can you lose

What you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries

So live and laugh, aha!

Laugh and love

Live and laugh,

Laugh and love,

Live and laugh at it all!

03. Bye Bye Blackbird

Pack up all my care and woe,

Here I go,

Singing low,

Bye bye blackbird,

Where somebody waits for me,

Sugar's sweet, so is she,

Bye bye

Blackbird!

No one here can love or understand me,

Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me,

Make my bed and light the light,

I'll be home late tonight,

Blackbird bye bye.

Pack up all my care and woe,

Here I go,

Singing low,

Bye (bye) bye (bye) blackbird.

Where somebody waits for me,

Sugar's sweet, so is she,

Bye (bye) bye (bye) blackbird.

Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me,

(Oh oh oh oh)

Make my bed, light that light,

I'll be home late tonight,

Blackbird...

Make my bed and light the light,

I'll be home late tonight,

Leave you bird jet in the sky

Toodle oo!

Farewell!

Bye bye!

Blackbird

(Blackbird,Blackbird)

We'll take the flying little blackbird bye!

05. Crunchy Granola Suite

(Neil Diamond)

Good lord!

Da da da da

Da da da da da

Dee dee dee dum

I got a song been on my mind

And the tune can be sung and the words all rhyme

Deedle-ee deet deet deet deet deet deet deet dee deedle-ee doo

Though it don't say much and it won't offend

If you sing it in school then they're liable to send you home

Never knowing what you're showin'

Think you're growin' your own tea

Good lord!

Let me hear that!

Let me hear that!

Crunchy granola's suite

Sing it out

Alright

I know a man was outta touch

And he'd hide in a house and he didn't say much

Deedle-ee deet deet deet deet deet deet deet deedle-ee doo

And like a man with a tiger outside his gate

He not only couldn't relax but he couldn't relate

Now he can

Family man

Tried my brand

Dig

Let me hear that!

Let me hear that!

Crunchy granola's suite

Drop your shrink and stop your drinkin'

Crunchy granola's neat

Sing it out

Alright

Da da da da

Da da da da da

Dee dee dee dum

06. I Wanna Be A Dancin' Man

I wanna be a dancin' man,

While I can,

Gonna leave my footsteps on the sands of time,

If I never leave a dime.

Never be a millionaire,

I don't care,

I'll be rich as old King Midas might have been

Least until the tide rolls in

Let other men build the mighty nations,

Or stairways to the sky,

I'll leave a few creations

To show that I was a dancin' by.

I wanna be free as any bird can be, yes siree,

I wanna leave my footsteps on the sands of time,

If I never leave a dime, dime.

A dancin' man

With footsteps

On the sands...

Of rhythm....and rhyme.

I wanna be a dancin' man,

While I can,

Gonna leave my footsteps on the sands of time,

If I never leave a dime.

Never be a millionaire,

I don't care,

I'll be rich as old King Midas,

Midas might have been

Least until the tide rolls in

Let other men build the mighty nations,

Or stairways to the sky,

I'll leave a few creations

To show that I was a dancin' by,

I wanna be free as any bird can be, yes siree,

I wanna leave my footsteps on the sands of time,

If I never leave a dime...

To show that I was a dancin' by...

I wanna leave my footsteps on the sands of time...

A dancin' man

Of rhythm

Ha huh....and rhyme.

A dancin' man

A dancin' man

A dancin' man

With footsteps on the sands

Of rhythm

Pow!...and rhyme.

On the sands of time

All time!

On the sands of time

All time!

On the sands of time

All time!

07. Steam Heat

11. Dancin' Dan (Me And My Shadow)

12. Nowadays

It's good, isn't it?

Grand, isn't it?

Great, isn't it?

Swell, isn't it?

Fun, isn't it?

Nowadays

There's man, everywhere

Jazz, everywhere

Booze, everywhere

Life, everywhere

Joy, everywhere

Nowadays

You can like the life you're living

You can live the life you like

You can even marry Harry

But mess around with Ike, huh!

And that's

Good, isn't it?

Grand, isn't it?

Great, isn't it?

Swell, isn't it?

Fun, isn't it...

But nothing stays

In fifty years or so

It's gonna change, you know

But, oh, it's heaven

Nowadays

And that's

Good, isn't it?

Grand, isn't it?

Great, isn't it?

Swell, isn't it?

15. Razzle Dazzle

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle

Razzle dazzle 'em

Give 'em an act with lots of flash in it

And the reaction will be passionate

Give 'em the old hocus pocus

Bread and feather 'em

How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

Long as you keep 'em way off balance

How can they spot you got no talents?

Razzle dazzle 'em

And they'll never catch wise!

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle

Razzle dazzle 'em

Back since the days of old Methuselah

Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-ler

Give 'em the old

Double whammy

When you're in trouble, go into your dance

Though you are stiffer than a girder

They let ya get away with a murder

Razzle dazzle 'em

Razzle dazzle 'em

Razzle dazzle 'em

And you've got a romance

16. Who's Sorry Now?

Who's sorry now, who's sorry now?

Whose heart is aching for breaking each vow?

Who's sad and blue, who's crying too?

Just like I cried over you...

Right to the end, just like a friend,

I tried to warn you, somehow,

Aaaaaaaaahhh!

You had your way, now you must pay,

We're glad that you're sorry now.

17. There'll Be Some Changes Made

You better change your way of livin'

And if that ain't enough

(she's right you better listen!)

You better change your way you strut your stuff

'Cause nobody wants you when you're old and gray

You better change your way today

You better change your way...

- Can you hear me ? I'm talking to ya!

- You gotta lay off the boose!

- abstain and vitamins!

- You better stop screwing around!

You better stop

You better change

You better stop

You better change

You better stop

You better change

You better stop

You better change

You better stop

You better change and change your way today!

I said stop, change, stop, please!

Please!Please!Please!Please!Please!

18. Mr. Bojangles

I knew a man Bojangles

And he danced for you

In worn out shoes

With silver hair, a ragged shirt

And baggy pants, the old soft shoe

He jumped so high,

He jumped so high,

Then he lightly touched down

Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,

Mr. Bojangles, dance!

I met him in a cell in New Orleans,

I was down and out

He looked to be the eyes of age as spoke right out

He talked of life,

He talked of life,

He laughed, slapped his leg a step

He said his name, Bojangles,

Then he danced a lick across the cell

He grabbed pants of better stants,

Then he jumped up high, he clicked his heels

He let go a laugh,

He let go a laugh, shook back his clothes all around

Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,

Mr. Bojangles, dance!

La-dee da da...

Hum-um-um...

Dee-dah-dah-dah

He danced for those at minstrel shows

And county fairs throughout the south

He spoke with tears of 15 years

How his dog and he traveled about

His dog up and died, up and died,

After 20 years he still grieved

He said I dance now at ev'ry chance

In honky tonks for drinks and tips

But most of the time

I spend behind these county bars

He said 'I drinks a bit'

He shook his head

And as he shook his head

I heard someone ask "Please!"

"Please!"

Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,

Mr. Bojangles, dance!

La-dee da da...

Hum-um-um...

Dee-dah-dah-dah

Dance! Dance! Dance!

19. Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries (Reprise)

Life is just a bowl of cherries

Don't take it serious,

Life's too mysterious

You work,

You save,

You worry so

But you can't take your dough

When you go, go, go

So keep repeating "It's the berries."

The strongest oak must fall

The sweet things in life

To you were just loaned

So how can you lose

What you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries

So live and laugh,

Laugh and love

Live and laugh at it all!

So keep repeating "It's the berries."

The strongest oak must fall

The sweet things in life

To you were just loaned

So how can you lose

What you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries

So live and laugh, aha!

Laugh and love

Live and laugh,

Laugh and love,

Live and laugh at it all!
