Peggy Lee Don’t Smoke In Bed

I left a note on his dresser

And my old wedding ring

With these few goodbye words

How can I sing

Goodbye old sleepy head

I’m packing you in like I said

Take care of everything

I’m leaving my wedding ring

Don’t look for me

I’ll get a hand

Remember darling

Don’t smoke in bed

Don’t look for me

I’ll get a hand

Remember darling

Don’t smoke in bed

Peggy Lee Dancing On The Ceiling

The world is lyrical

Because a miracle

Has brought my lover to me

Though he’s some other place, his face I see

At night I creep in bed

And never sleep in bed

But look above in the air

And to my greatest joy, my love is there

He dances overhead

On the ceiling near my bed

In my sight

Through the night

I try to hide in vain

Underneath my counterpane

But there’s my love

Up above

I whisper, “Go away, my lover

It’s not fair”

But I’m so grateful to discover

He’s still there

I love my ceiling more

Since it is a dancing floor

Just for my love

Peggy Lee I Don’t Want To Play In Your Yard

I don’t want to play in your yard

I don’t like you anymore

You’ll be sorry when you see me

Sliding down our cellar door

You can’t holler down our rain barrel

You can’t climb our apple tree

I don’t wanna play in your yard

If you can’t be good to me

You can’t holler down our rain barrel

You can’t climb our apple tree

I don’t wanna play in your yard

If you can’t be good to me

Peggy Lee I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

And send him on his way

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

And send him on his way

Don’t try to patch it up

Tear it up, tear it up

Wash him out, dry him out

Push him out, fly him out

Cancel him and let him go

Yea, sister!

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair

And send him on his way

If a man don’t understand you,

If you fly on separate beams,

Waste no time, make a change,

Ride that man right off your range

Rub him out of the roll call

And drum him out of your dreams

Oho! If you laugh at different comics

If you root for different teams

Waste no time, weep no more

Show him what the door is for

Rub him out of the roll call

And drum him out of your dreams

You can’t light a fire when the woods are wet

You can’t make a butterfly strong

You can’t fix an egg when it ain’t quite good

And you can’t fix a man when he’s wrong

You can’t put back a petal when it falls from a flower

Or sweeten up a fellow when he starts turnin’ sour

Oh no! Oh no!

If his eyes get dull and fishy

When you look for glints and gleams

Waste no time

Make a switch

Drop him in the nearest ditch

Rub him out of the roll call

And drum humdrumbum right out of your dreams

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

I’m gonna wave that man right outta my arms

And sent him on his way

Walk him out

Dry him out

Push him out

Fly him out

And send him on his way!

Peggy Lee Christmas Carousel

Christmas is a carousel

And round and round we go

Busy doin’, wrapping things

For ev’ryone we know

Trim the house and trim the tree

And let the spirit show

Sing some carols loud and clear

And set the lights aglow

Hang your stocking for Saint Nick

And he will fill it up

Don’t forget to leave some cookies

And a Christmas cup

Leave some food for all his reindeer

And the Christmas mouse

Leave a little bit of cheese

Somewhere around the house

Now I think that we’re all set

So let’s all take a ride

Don’t you feel the Christmas joy

That makes you glad inside

Hold your candycane way out

As round and round we go

And if you should catch the ring

It’s made of mistletoe

Peggy Lee Good For Nothin’ Joe

It’s gonna rain any minute

There’s not a star in sight

Things are mighty slow

I guess, I’ll close up shop

And go home to Joe

I know he won’t be glad to see me

Without a penny to the good

But I’m not carin’ much what happens

I did the best I could

He’s just good-for-nothin’ Joe

But, oh, I love him so

Guess, I’d die if good-for-nothin’ Joe

Ever tried to leave me flat

Oh yes, I’m certain of that

Folks I know can’t understand

Why I must have that man

Lord, he sends me like nobody can

Ain’t a woman just like that?

I wouldn’t mind doin’ what I’m doin’

I’d beat these streets till my feet were sore

But when it’s slow and I go home to him

Instead of sympathy, he’s just as mean as can be

Still there’s nothin’ I can do

Because I love him so

I’d be good for nothin’ too, I know

Without good-for-nothin’ Joe

I’d be good for nothin’ too, I know

Without good-for-nothin’ Joe

I’m goin’ home to Joe

Peggy Lee Boston Beans

I took a trip to Boston

I was feeling in the mood

For a plate of that wonderful famous food

When I got there I had a big shock

Just about as big as a whole city block

They have no beans in Boston

Plenty of fish

Chinese food if that’s your dish

Steaks and chops are a beautiful fair

I couldn’t find any Boston beans there

When Captain John Smith came in 1614

He was the first diplomat that the Indians had seen

If they had Boston Beans than I really wouldn’t know

Got to admit that was a long time ago

No beans in Boston

Plenty of fish

Chinese food if that’s your dish

Steaks and chops are a beautiful fair

I couldn’t find any Boston beans there

And when Paul Revere rode his horse that night

And lit those lanterns before the big fight

He must of been hungry when he got back

Boston beans would of been a beautiful snack

They have some tea leaves left from that well known party

Great museums if your feeling hearty

They have Cambridge and Harvard and MIT

The didn’t have any beans for me

No beans in Boston

Plenty of fish

Chinese food if that’s your dish

Steaks and chops are a beautiful fair

I couldn’t find any Boston beans there

I love Boston but there’s no beans there

Peggy Lee Is That All There Is?

I remember when I was a little girl

Our house caught on fire

I’ll never forget the look on my father’s face

As he gathered me up in his arms and

Raced through the burning building out to the pavement

And I stood there shivering in my pajamas and

Watched the whole world go up in flames

And when it was all over, I said to myself

“Is that all there is to a fire”

Is that all there is

Is that all there is

If that’s all there is, my friends

Then let’s keep dancing

Let’s break out the booze and have a ball

If that’s all there is

And when I was twelve years old

My daddy took me to a circus

“The Greatest Show on Earth”

There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears

And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads

And as I sat there watching

I had the feeling that something was missing

I don’t know what

But when it was all over, I said to myself

“Is that all there is to a circus”

Is that all there is

Is that all there is

If that’s all there is, my friends

Then let’s keep dancing

Let’s break out the booze and have a ball

If that’s all there is

And then I fell in love

With the most wonderful boy in the world

We’d take long walks down by the river

Or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes

We were so very much in love

And then one day, he went away

And I thought I’d die, but I didn’t

And when I didn’t, I said to myself

“Is that all there is to love”

Is that all there is

Is that all there is

If that’s all there is, my friends

Then let’s keep

I know what you must be saying to yourselves

“If that’s the way she feels about it

Why doesn’t she just end it all”

Oh, no, not me

I’m in no hurry for that final disappointment

Cause I know just as well as I’m standing here talking to you

That when that final moment comes and I’m breathing my last breath

I’ll be saying to myself

Is that all there is

Is that all there is

If that’s all there is, my friends

Then let’s keep dancing

Let’s break out the booze and have a ball

If that’s all there is

Peggy Lee Fever

Never know how much I love you

Never know how much I care

When you put your arms around me

I get a fever that’s so hard to bear

You give me fever

When you kiss me

Fever when you hold me tight

Fever! in the morning

Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the daytime

Moon lights up the night

I light up when you call my name

And you know I’m gonna treat you right

You give me fever

When you kiss me

Fever when you hold me tight

Fever! in the morning

Fever all through the night

Everybody’s got the fever

That is something you all know

Fever isn’t such a new thing

Fever started long ago

Romeo loved Juliet

Juliet, she felt the same

When he put his arms around her

He said, “Julie, baby, you’re my flame

“Thou giveth fever

“When we kisseth

“Fever with thy flaming youth

“Fever! I’m afire

“Fever, yea, I burn, forsooth.”

Cap’n Smith and Pocahontas

Had a very mad affair

When her daddy tried to kill him

She said, “Daddy, oh, don’t you dare!

“He gives me fever

“With his kisses

“Fever when he holds me tight

“Fever! I’m his missus

“Daddy, won’t you treat him right?”

Now you’ve listened to my story

Here’s the point that I have made

Chicks were born to give you fever

Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

They give you fever

When you kiss them

Fever if you live and learn

Fever! till you sizzle

What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn
