Nikki Yanofsky First Lady

First lady, move me

Tell me of your song

It’s sad but true

Touched by the feeling memories I adore

I’m glad I have you

My lady, very first lady

Cherished songs you passed on to

I feel compelled to thank you, dear love

You will remain forever

I wish there was some way to thank you

So I write this song dedicated to you

You will remain forever

I wish there was some way to thank you

So I write this song dedicated to you

Nikki Yanofsky Out Of Nowhere

Mmm

Waiting for your call alone in the dark

Hours have passed still the phone isn’t rigning

Everybody could see

You’ve grown tired of me

Suddenly we’ve come undone

Unraveling as you pull away from me

Yesterday we were fine

When did you stop being mine, oh mine

Out of nowhere

Your love disappeared

Vanished into thin air

Out of nowhere

You’re like a stranger to me

And you don’t ever care

Out of nowhere

Out of nowhere

Did’nt see this coming but now I see the signs

Was another lady running through your mind

Are we over for real?

Tell me how you really feel

Out of nowhere

Your love disappeared

Vanished into thin air

Out of nowhere

You’re like a stranger to me

And you don’t ever care

Out of nowhere

Out of nowhere

Won’t you please either let me know or let me go

Right now you got me feeling low, low, low

Out of nowhere

Your love disappeared

Vanished into thin air

Out of nowhere

You’re like a stranger to me

And you don’t ever care

Out of nowhere

Out of nowhere

Nikki Yanofsky You’ll Have To Swing It (Mr. Paganini)

The concert was over in Carnagie Hall

The maestro took bow after bow

He said, “My dear friends, I have given my all

I’m sorry, it’s all over now”

When from the balcony way up high

There suddenly came a mournful cry

Oh, Mr. Paganini

Please play my rhapsody

And if you cannot play it, won’t you sing it?

And if you can’t sing it you simply have to

Only, only, only, only on Mr. Paganini

We breathlessly await your masterful détente

Go on and sling it

And if you can’t sling it you simply have to

We heard your repertoire and at the final bar

We greeted you with a round of applause

But what a great ovation, your interpretation of

‘I never cared much for moonlight skies

I never blinked back at fireflies’ would do

So Paganini

Don’t you be a meanie

What have you up your sleeve?

Come on and spring it

And if you can’t spring it you simply have to

Listen Paganini

Please play my rhapsody

And if you cannot play it, won’t you sing it?

If the boys are bopping, ain’t no need in stopping

Listen Paganini

We breathlessly await your masterful détente

Come on and spring it

If the boys is bopping ain’t no need in stopping

I heard your repertoire and at the final bar

We greeted you, we greeted you

With wild applause

But what a great ovation, your interpretation of

Listen Paganini

Now, don’t you be a meanie

What have you up your sleeve?

Come on and spring it

And if you can’t spring it

You simply have to swing it

The concert was over in Carnagie Hall

The maestro took bow after bow

He said, “My dear friends, I have given my all

Nikki Yanofsky For Another Day

Where do I start now?

There’s so many things to dream before the morning light

Sending my heart out

What will I see before I open up my eyes

Before the sunrise?

Don’t it seem strange how

Dreams just float away?

They leave us with questions

For another day

When the morning comes at last

There’s so many thing to do before I lay down

Though it may be overcast

I can see a light that shines right through the darkest cloud

I’m going out

And don’t it seems strange how

Time just drifts away?

I leave all the questions

For another day

And don’t it seem strange how

Dreams just float away?

They leave us with questions

For another day

And don’t it seems strange how

Time just drifts away?

I leave all the questions

For another day

For another day

Nikki Yanofsky A Tisket, A Tasket

A tisket, a tasket

A brown and yellow basket

I send a letter to my mommy

On the way

I dropped it

I dropped it

I dropped it

Yes, on the way

I dropped it

A little girlie picked it up

And put it in her pocket

She was trucking on down the avenue

Not a single thing to do

She went peck, peck, pecking all around

When she spied it on the ground

She took it

She took it

My little yellow basket

And if she doesn’t bring it back

I think that I will die

A tisket, a tasket

I lost my yellow basket

And if that girl don’t return it

I don’t know what I’ll do

Oh dear

I wonder where my basket can be

(So do we, so do we, so do we, so do we, so do we)

Oh dear

I wish that little girl I could see

(So do we, so do we, so do we, so do we, so do we)

Oh why was I so careless

With that basket of mine?

That itty bitty basket was a joy of mine

A tisket, a tasket

I lost my yellow basket

Won’t someone help me find my basket

And make me happy again? again

(Was it green?)

No, no, no, no

(Was it red?)

No, no, no, no

(Was it blue?)

No, no, no, no

Just a little yellow basket

A little yellow basket

Nikki Yanofsky Relax Max

Relax, Max

Your nerves are just like jumping jacks, Max

Your heart is thumping

With a crazy sound

Hear it pound

Bumping

Bumping

Bumping

Jumpin’ up and down

Stay cool, fool

Just take it easy

That’s the rule, fool

The evening hasn’t even started yet

So, my pet

Control yourself

Control yourself

Don’t get upset

Don’t think I’m cold

If I say you’re too bold

I’ve been fooled by that moon up above

I want your kiss

Just as you want my kiss

But a kiss is no kiss without love

So relax, Max

I hate to stop you in your tracks, Max

But first you gotta prove your love to me

When you do

I’ll love you, love you, love you

Like you want me to

Don’t think I’m cold

If I say you’re too bold

I’ve been fooled by that moon up above

I want your kiss

Just as you want my kiss

But

Relax, Max

I hate to stop you in your tracks, Max

But first you gotta prove your love is true

When you do

I’ll love you, love you, love you

Like you want me to

Ah, come on, relax, Max

Your nerves are kinda bad there, boy

Hold it down, boy

Take it easy, fool

Relax yourself

The evening’s young yet

Mmm

Come on and relax, Max

Relax yourself

Nikki Yanofsky You Mean The World To Me

I think about you

Night and day

I think about you

When I’m away

How I miss your kiss and huggin’

How I long to have your lovin’

How you mean the world to me

I think about you

All the time

I think about how

You’re all mine

How only I can hold your hand

How you’re the one I call the man

How you mean the world to me

Every time I feel your touch

Boy, you give me such a rush

And every time you stroke my hair

You send shivers everywhere

I think about you

And your smile

I think about the

Longest mile

And I would run to get to you

And I know you would do that too

Cause you mean the world to me

Every time I feel your touch

Boy, you give me such a rush

And every time you stroke my hair

You send shivers everywhere

I think about you

My sweet heart

I think about you

Where do I start

Cause all the worlds I coul unseal

Don’t justify just how I feel

Cause you mean the world to me

You mean the world to me

Nikki Yanofsky Grey Skies

Grey skies seem right,

An encore to last night.

Your song played on, on, on

While I fall with the bed.

She wrapped me tight

And said it’ll be alright.

Just sleep and the night’ll pass on by,

Close your eyes, yeah

‘Cause every touch is satisfied,

Every kiss is right on time,

Every time I say I miss you tonight,

Grey skies seem right,

Grey skies seem right.

Laying still on your side

The ache I feel can trust the smile.

The sense you left with me

Is fillin’ up my mind

So I close my eyes, yeah

Every touch is satisfied,

Every kiss is right on time,

Every time I say I miss you tonight,

Grey skies seem right.

It’s bitter-sweet this pain,

As though I just left you the other day.

I’m going half insane

Talkin’ to my bedding for hope again.

‘Cause every touch is satisfied,

Every kiss is right on time,

Every time I say I miss you tonight,

Grey skies oh yes

Every touch is satisfied,

Every kiss is right on time,

‘Cause every time I say I miss you tonight,

Grey skies seem right,

Grey skies seem right,

Grey skies seem right.

Grey skies seem right.

Nikki Yanofsky Young Love

Young love

Rebels in a world where no one trusts each other

Young love

All we got is us

Say we’re lost in each other’s eyes

Say we’re gone, been hypnotized

They say we’re young to be this bound

Shut the world off for a while

Make ’em think we’re running wild

They’re talking loud, don’t hear a sound

Far from what those people say

Won’t let this go to waste

We got that “once in a lifetime”

We’ve got that

[Chorus:]

Young love

Rebels in a world where no one trusts each other

Young love

All we got is us

That’s more than enough

‘Cuz your love

Is greater than a thousand planets, undiscovered

Young love

Young love

I fell for you just like a child

But it’s not just juvenile

Why should I explain myself?

Far from what those people say

Won’t let this go to waste

We got that “once in a lifetime”

We’ve got that

[Chorus]

We built our hopes so high

But they’re gonna try to climb and break us

They don’t understand what we have found

Won’t let them in this place

Won’t listen when they say

That we are way too young to ever feel this way

[Chorus x2]
