Nikki Yanofsky Lullaby Of Birdland

Lullaby of Birdland

That’s what I always hear when you sigh

Never in my woodland

Could there be words to reveal

In a phrase how I feel

Have you ever heard two turtle doves

Bill and coo

When they love

That’s the kind of magic

Music we make with our lips when we kiss

And there’s a weepy ol’ willow

He really knows how to cry

That’s how I cry in my pillow

If you should tell me

Farewell and goodbye

Lullaby of Birdland

Whisper low

Kiss me sweet and we’ll go

Flying high in Birdland

High in the sky

Up above

All because we’re in love

Nikki Yanofsky On The Sunny Side Of The Street / Fool In The Rain

Uh, oh, light up the love that I’ve found, I’m just a fool in the rain…

Grab your coat and snatch your hat

Leave your worries on the doorstep

Just direct your feet

To the sunny side of the street

Can’t you hear that pitter pat

And that happy tune is your step

Life can be so sweet

On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade

With those blues on parade

No longer afraid the rover, crossed over

If I never had a cent

I’ll be rich as Rockfeller

Gold dust at my feet

on the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade

With those blues on parade

No longer afraid

The rover, he get over

If I never had a cent

I’ll be rich as Rockfeller

Gold dust at my feet

On the sunny side of the street

On the sunny side, on the sunny side

On the sunny, the sunny side of the street

Yeah…

Nikki Yanofsky The Way You Look Tonight

Some day, when I’m awfully low

When the world is cold

I will feel a glow just thinking of you

And the way you look tonight

Yes you’re lovely, with your smile so warm

And your cheeks so soft

There is nothing for me but to love you

And the way you look tonight

With each word your tenderness grows

Tearing my fear apart

And that laugh that wrinkles your nose

It touches my foolish heart

Lovely, don’t you ever change

Keep that breathless charm

Won’t you please arrange it?

Cause I love you, just the way you look tonight

Nikki Yanofsky Bang

Looking out the window through the frame frame frame

All these passerbyers look the same same same to him

Paying close attention can’t let him get away way way

He don’t need a picture just a name

He’s the one they always call

And the one I’ve fallen for

Such a dangerous allure

Cuz there’s one thing, one thing that he’s known for

Bang bang bang bang my babe will get ya

Bang bang bang bang he’ll send you to your

Grave grave grave grave there’s nothing that can

Save save save save your soul

Most wild forces can’t be tamed tamed tamed

Better duck your head down as he aims aims aims for it

Killin for a livin’, such a crying shame

But evils such a good dog when its chained chained chained

Such a dangerous allure

Cuz there’s one thing, one thing that he’s known for

Bang bang bang bang my babe will get ya

Bang bang bang bang he’ll send you to your

Grave grave grave grave there’s nothing that can

Save save save save your soul

If a price is on your head

You can be your dead before you hit the groud

And if you sense he’s on your tail, you can try to run

But all have failed

Bang bang bang bang my babe will get ya

Bang bang bang bang he’ll send you to your

Grave grave grave grave

There’s nothing that can save you now

Save save save save your soul

Nikki Yanofsky Never Make It On Time

Shoes hurting my feet

The cars are passing me by

I’m taking off the wrong streets

I’ll never make it on time

Never make it on time

I’m trying to get to you

Something just won’t let me through

I don’t know what I’m gonna do

Help me, please

‘Cause I can swim in a stream

And I can hear the clock chime

‘Cause I come in a bad dream

I’ll never make it on time

Never make it on time

I’m trying to get to you

Something just won’t let me through

I don’t know what I’m gonna do

Help me, please

Just to know he’s waiting

Makes it more frustrating

But there’s a pain

Nothing I can do

It’s kind of funny to see

He’s always treated me so kind

He’s always good to me

I’ll never make it on time

I won’t make it on time

No way I’ll make it on time

I’m really sorry but it just don’t look as if

I’m gonna be there on time

I won’t make it on time

Nikki Yanofsky God Bless The Child

Them that’s got shall get

Them that’s not shall lose

So the Bible said and it still is news

Mama may have, Papa may have

But God bless the child that’s got his own

That’s got his own

Yes, the strong gets more

While the weak ones fade

Empty pockets don’t ever make the grade

Mama may have, Papa may have

But God bless the child that’s got his own

That’s got his own

Money, you’ve got lots of friends

Crowding round the door

When you’re gone, spending ends

They don’t come no more

Rich relations give

Crust of bread and such

You can help yourself

But don’t take too much

Mama may have, Papa may have

But God bless the child that’s got his own

That’s got his own

Mama may have, Papa may have

But God bless the child that’s got his own

That’s got his own

He just worry ’bout nothin’

Cause he’s got his own

Nikki Yanofsky I Believe

There comes a moment when my heart must stand alone

On this lonely path I’ve chosen

Like a house that’s not a home

Sometimes when I feel I’ve had enough

And I feel like giving up

You willed me to be all I can be

Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes

From a world brought together as one

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power of you and I

This is the moment we have dreamed of all our lives

We’ll be the change we wish from others

We’ll stand tall for what is right

And in my heart, there’ll be no doubt

The arms of the world will come reaching out

And embrace me to be all I can be

Now nothing can stop me

I believe in the power that comes

From a world brought together as one

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power of you and I

I believe the time is right now

Stand tall and make the world proud

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power of you and I

I believe in the power of you and I

I believe, I believe, I believe in…

I believe, I believe in…

I believe, I believe, I believe in…

I believe, I believe in you

I believe, I believe, I believe in…

I believe, I believe in you

I believe, I believe, I believe in you

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power of you and I

I believe the time is right now

Stand tall and make the world proud

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power…

I believe in the power that comes

From a world brought together as one (of you and I)

I believe together we’ll fly

I believe in the power of you and I (I will)

I believe the time is right now

Stand tall and make the world proud

I believe together we’ll fly (together we’ll fly)

I believe in the power of you and I (I believe in the power of you and I)

Nikki Yanofsky Over The Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high

There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue

And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

One day I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where your troubles melt like lemon drops

Way above the chimney tops, that’s where you’ll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds, they fly

If birds can fly over, over the rainbow, why, then why can’t I?

One day I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where your troubles melt like lemon drops

Way above the chimney tops, that’s where you’ll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds, they fly

If birds can fly over the rainbow, why, then why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow

Why, oh, why can’t I?

Nikki Yanofsky Cool My Heels

Cool my heels when the heat is on

Slow my wheels when it feels so wrong

Fool themselves but they won’t fool me

Who else is gonna make them see?

Everything is moving way too fast

There’s only one way that I’m gonna last

I’ve got to cool my heels, cool my heels

I’ve gotta cool my heels when the heat is on

Cool my heels before I lose control

This devil deal is ’bout to take my soul

It’s like the garden and the apple tree

Same old temptation keeps a haunting me

Everybody’s got something to say

But I’m the one that’s got to pay some day

Unless I cool, cool my heels, cool my heels

Cool my heels when the heat is on

All these cars racing around the corner

Although we know we’re fast

I’m not gonna worry about it

I’m gonna let them pass

Cool my heels when the heat is on

Slow my wheels when it feels so wrong

Full themselves but they won’t fool me

Who else is gonna make them see?

Everything is moving way too fast

There’s only one way that I’m gonna last

I’ve got to cool my heels, slow my wheels

Cool my heels when the heat is on

Cool my, cool my heels

I’ve got to cool my heels

Cool my, cool my heels

Got to, got to cool my heels

Cool my heels when the heat is on

Nikki Yanofsky Blessed With Your Curse

In a trance I don’t understand

You’re pulling me in but I’m down with the damned

A supernatural chemistry

Somehow something’s possessing me

Is this a trap? Better watch my back

Cuz the cat’s all black and the mirrors are cracked

Feeling spooked, wanting you, sweet taboo

Magic tricks, get your kicks, you put a jinx, now I’m bewitched

1 and 3 mystery, thrilling me

I’m blessed with your curse

I don’t remember, I don’t remember which came first

For better or worse

Got me blessed with your curse

Lucky charm without any luck

That’s what you are, yet I’m hooked, now I’m stuck

You’re an accident waiting for me to happen

A deep dark tunnel but the lights at the end

Is this a trap? Better watch my back

Cuz the cat’s all black and the mirrors are cracked

Feeling spooked, wanting you, sweet taboo

Magic tricks, get your kicks, you put a jinx, now I’m bewitched

1 and 3 mystery, thrilling me

I’m blessed with your curse

I don’t remember, don’t remember which came first

For better or worse

Got me blessed with your curse

I’ve tasted poison, there’s no turning back

I’m addicted, your love’s a heart attack

It’s sick how much I’m into this

Into you, into you

I’m blessed with your curse

I’m ready for the worst

I’m blessed with your curse

Diving in head first

I’m blessed with your curse

I don’t remember, don’t remember which came first

For better or worse

Got me blessed with your curse
