Hello may I have this dance with you

I've always wanted you to be my girl

When all the time he knew I loved you too

With your big eyes full lips high cheek bones
And everything about you girl personality girl

Goodnight

Roy Orbison - Bill Dees

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

My Lovely woman child I found you out running wild with someone new
You've been untrue and everybody knows we're through

But I can't say goodbye to you no matter what you do
My heart won't let you go although I know you go with someone new
I think of you

I think of how you kiss your tenderness
With all of this I miss the way you say goodnight

Bitter sweet your kisses when my heart still misses
The way that things used to be
But I know you're strong for other arms you long for
And you can never come back to me

Not just for yesterday tonight or tomorrow
Ah but forever I'll hear you say goodnight goodnight
Goodnight turned out to be a lie
And I can't help it if I cry
Goodnight my love sleep tight my love goodnight

(I Get So) Sentimental

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I get so ooh sentimental darling when it comes to you
I'm just too sentimental and it's breaking my heart in two

I said hey I said hey now at the end of the day now
I get carried away now thinking of you ooh

How you looked that night you kissed goodbye just right
Then turned away and I miss you night and day

Hey hey hey now at the end of the day now
I get carried away now thinking of you ooh

Who holds you tight I wonder where you are
Are you alright for you know I still love you

But I'm just so sentimental baby because of you
Yes I'm just too sentimental and it's breaking my heart in two

Yo Te Amo Maria

Roy Orbison - Bill Dees

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I'm a poor peasant boy I'm a dirt farmer's son
And I feel like a king when I know that my work is all done
For at twilight I know there's a place I must go
And sing my song of love for one who waits all alone

Yo te amo Maria Maria amo
Yo te amo Maria Maria mi amo

Oh the beautiful sights of the great city lights
Where most people must run to try to have fun not for me
For this woman of mine is much sweeter than wine
And I spend all the time I can find with my Marie

Yo te amo Maria Maria amo
Yo te amo Maria Maria mi amo

Oh the joy of my life will one day be my wife
And we'll spend all our days watching the world roll on by
When her time comes to fly to that home in the sky
I pray the angels above will love her as much as I

Yo te amo Maria Maria amo
Yo te amo Maria Maria mi amo

Wedding Day

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

Wonder how long it will take
For this heart of mine to break
As I watch you walk away
This was to be our wedding day

I won't hear the choir sing
While I hold your golden ring
Might as well throw it away
With my dreams of wedding day

Oh oh oh oh
To hold you in my arms again
I watched my whole world fade away
On this our wedding day

Who was right and who was wrong
Makes no difference when you're all alone
As I watch you walk away
Goodbye darling goodbye wedding day

Sleepy Hollow

Bill Dees

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

There's a place I call Sleepy Hollow
Where I go when you're not around
There's a brook running clear in the meadow
I lose my blues in its sound

The wind and the trees from the hollow
Whisper secrets of life in my ear
When I lay down in their shadows
I dream that you're still here

The bubbling babbling brook is your laughter
The wind blowing softly your touch
I've found the one thing I'm after
Your love your love means so much

Oh until you say that you love me
And make all my dreams come true
I'll go down to my Sleepy Hollow
And dream my dreams of you

I'll go down to my Sleepy Hollow
And dream my dreams of you

Twenty-Two Days

Gene Pitney

© January Music, BMI

Oh it's been twenty-two lonely blue days without a word from you
And forty-four million more tears I've cried since you walked through that door

The sun never reaches my doorstep
Each empty day seems to be the same
You've broken your vow but I still love you now
Oh this love of mine is a one way losing game

And it's been twenty-two lonely blue days without a word from you...

The dreams that we share are gone forever
But I still have a little hope in my heart
Is this the way it ends are we to be both friends
Oh I can't go on if we're to be apart

And it's been twenty-two lonely blue days without a word from you...

Yeah twenty-two days since you walked through that door
Ah twenty-two days since you walked through that door
Yeah twenty-two days since you walked through that door
Mhm twenty-two days since you walked through that door

(I'd Be A) Legend In My Time

Don Gibson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time

If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
I'd be a legend in my time

But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken over love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Then everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time
[ sax ]
If loneliness meant world acclaim
Then everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time
