Johnny Mathis Ave Maria

Maria

The most beautiful sound I ever heard

Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria

All the beautiful sounds of the world

In a single word

Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria

Maria, Maria

Maria

I just met a girl named Maria

And suddenly that name

Will never be the same to me

Maria,

I just kissed a girl named Maria

And suddenly I found

How wonderful a sound can be

Maria,

Say it loud and there’s music playing

Say it soft and it’s almost like praying

Maria

I

Johnny Mathis Betcha By Golly, Wow

There’s a spark of magic in your eyes

Candyland appears each time you smile

Never thought that fairy tales came true

But they come true when I’m near you

You’re a genie in disguise

Full of wonder and surprise and…

Betcha by golly wow!

You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever

And ever will my love for you keep growing strong

Keep growing strong

If I could, I’d catch a falling star

To shine on you so I know where you are

Paint a rainbow in your favorite shade

To show I love you, thinking of you

Write your name across the sky

Anything you ask, I’ll try

Betcha by golly wow!

You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for forever

And ever will my love for you keep growing strong

Keep growing strong

Johnny Mathis Caravan

Night and stars above that shine so bright

The myst’ry of their fading light

That shines upon our caravan

Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep

Across the sand so I may keep

The mem’ry of our caravan

This is so exciting

You are so inviting

Resting in my arms

As I thrill to the magic charms

Of you beside me here beneath the blue

My dream of love is coming true

Within our desert caravan

Johnny Mathis Day In Day Out

Day in-day out

The same old voodoo follows me about

The same old pounding in my heart

Whenever I think of you and darling, I think of you

Day in and day out

Day out-day in

I needn’t tell you how my days begin

When I awake I awaken with a tingle

One possibility in view

That possibility of maybe seeing you

Come rain-come shine

I meet you and to me the day is fine

Then I kiss your lips and the pounding becomes

The oceans roar, a thousand drums

Can’t you see it’s love? Can there be any doubt

When there it is, day in-day out?

Johnny Mathis Count Your Blessings

When I’m worried and I can’t sleep

I count my blessings instead of sheep

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small

I think of when I had none at all

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads

And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep

Just count your blessings instead of sheep

And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings

I think about a nursery and I picture curly heads

And one by one I count them as they slumber in their beds

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep

Just count your blessings instead of sheep

And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings

Johnny Mathis By The Time I Get To Phoenix

By the time I get to Phoenix

She’ll be rising

She’ll find the note I left hanging on her door

She’ll laugh, when she reads the part that says I’m leaving

Cause I’ve left that girl, so many times before

By the time I make Albuquerque

She’ll be working

She’ll probably stop at lunch,

And give me a call

But she’ll just hear that phone keep on ringing

Off the wall, that’s all

By the time I make Oklahoma

She’ll be sleeping

She’ll turn softly and call my name out low

And she’ll cry, just to think, I’d really leave her

Though time and time I’ve tried to tell her so

She just didn’t know,

I would really go

Johnny Mathis Crazy

Crazy, I’m crazy for feeling so lonely

I’m crazy, crazy for feeling so blue

I knew you’d love me as long as you wanted

And then someday you’d leave me for somebody new

Worry, why do I let myself worry?

Wondering what in the world did I do

Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you

I’m crazy for trying, I’m crazy for crying

And I’m crazy for loving you

Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you

I’m crazy for trying, I’m crazy for crying

And I’m crazy for loving you

Johnny Mathis Deep River

Deep River,

My home is over Jordan.

Deep River, Lord.

I want to cross over into campground.

Deep River.

My home is over Jordan.

Deep River, Lord,

I want to cross over into campground.

Oh, don’t you want to go,

To the Gospel feast;

That Promised Land,

Where all is peace?

Oh, deep River, Lord,

I want to cross over into campground.

Johnny Mathis A Ride On A Rainbow

Did you ever ride on a rainbow

Sit starry eyed on a rainbow

I did, last night

Did you ever whirl on a rainbow

And kiss a girl on a rainbow

I did, last night

Yes I found the girl I was seeking

And in a manner of speaking I did all right

All at once I was in her embrace

And it seems I was somewhere in space

And that’s all I can say to explain

How I took a rainbow ride last night

Last night, last night

Yes, I found the girl I was seeking

And in a manner of speaking I certainly did all right

All at once I was in her embrace

And it seems I was somewhere in space

And that’s all I can say to explain

How I took a rainbow ride last night

Johnny Mathis Call Me Irresponsible

Since I’m always making resolutions

Seems every night for me is New Year’s eve

Things they chisel on those institutions

These lofty thoughts I’ve never quite achieved

Each time I take a bow when everything went well

Things go alright and there am I saying I meant well

Well, call me irresponsible, call me unreliable

Throw in undependable, too

Do my foolish alibis bore you?

Well, I’m not too clever, I just adore you

Call me unpredictable, tell me I’m impractical

Rainbows, I’m inclined to pursue

Call me irresponsible, yes, I’m unreliable

But it’s undeniably true, I’m irresponsibly mad for you
