Little Bit of Broadway Lyrics
 

In My Own Little Corner

I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse
When I hear a command I obey
But I know of a spot in my house
Where no one can stand in my way.

In my own little corner,
In my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
And the world will open it's arms to me.

I'm a young Norwegian princess or a milkmaid
I'm the greatest prima donna in Milan
I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made
By her own flock of silkworms in Japan.

I'm a gril men go mad for love's a game that I can play
With cool and confident kind of air
Just as long as I stay in my own little corner
All alone in my own little chair.

I can be whatever I want to be
I'm a slave from Calcutta, I'm a queen in Peru
I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea

I'm a huntress on an African safari
It's a dangerous type of sport
And yet, it's fun

In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry
And I find I forgot to bring my gun!
I am lost in the jungle all alone and unarmed
When I meet a lioness in her lair

Then I'm glad to be back in my own little corner
All alone in my own little chair.

I Feel Pretty

I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and bright
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight

I feel charming
Oh so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real

See the pretty girl in that mirror there?
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunningand entrancing
Feel like running and dancing for joy
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

See the pretty girl in that mirror there?
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunningand entrancing
Feel like running and dancing for joy
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Place- park
Scene- dark
Silvery moon is shining through the trees

Cast- two
Me, you
Summer kisses floating on the breeze

Act one
Be done
Dialogue: "Where would you like to spoon?"
My cue: "With you
Underneath the silvery moon."

By the light
Of the silvery moon
I want to spoon
To my honey I'll croon love's tune

Honey moon, keep ashining in June
Your silvery beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddling soon
By the silvery moon.

Act two
Scene: new
Roses blooming all around the place
Cast: three
You, me, preacher with a solemn-looking face

Choir sings, bell rings
Preacher: "You are wed forevermore."
Act two, all through
Every night the same encore (the same encore)

By the light
Of the silvery moon
I want to spoon
To my honey I'll croon love's tune
Honey moon, keep ashining in June
Your silvery beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddling soon
By the silvery moon.

Your silvery beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddling soon
By the silvery moon.

The Lusty Month of May

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
Tra la! It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!
It's May! It's May!
That gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her ladwill be a cad!
It's mad! It's gay! A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!

Whence this fragrance wafting through the air?
What sweet feelings does its scent transmute?
Whence this perfume floating ev'rywhere?
Don't you know it's that dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la! That dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la!

Tra la la la la [etc.]

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That darling month when ev'ryone throws self-control away.
It's time to do a wretched thing or two,
And try to make each precious day
One you'll always rue!
It's May! It's May!
The month of "yes you may,"
The time for ev'ry frivolous whim,
Proper or "im."
It's wild! It's gay!
A blot in ev'ry way.
The birds and bees with all of their vast amorous past
Gaze at the human race aghast,
The lusty month of May.

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
Tra la! It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear.
It's May! It's May!
The month of great dismay

When all the world is brimming with fun,
Wholesome or "un."

It's mad! It's gay!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!

Baubles, Bangles, and Beads

Baubles, bangles, hear how they jing, jinga-linga
Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads
Sparkles, spangles, my heart will sing, singa-linga
Wearin' baubles, bangles and beads

I'll glitter and gleam so
Make somebody dream

So that some day he may buy me a ring, ringa-linga
I've heard that's where it leads
Wearing baubles, bangles, and beads

I'll glitter and gleam so
Make somebody dream

So that some day he may buy me a ring, ringa-linga
I've heard that that's where it leads
Wearing baubles, bangles, and beads.

Alexander's Ragtime Band

Oh, my honey, oh, my honey,
Better hurry and let's meander
Ain't you goin'? Ain't you goin'?
To the leader-man, ragged meter man?
Oh, my honey, oh, my honey,
Let me take you to Alexander's
Grand stand brass band,
Ain't you comin' along?

Come on and hear! Come on and hear!
Alexander's ragtime band!
Come on and hear! Come on and hear!
It's the best band in the land!
They can play a bugle call like you never heard before

That's just the bestest band in the land,
Oh, my honey lamb
Come on along, come on along,
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, up to the man,
Who's the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band.

Oh, that's just the best band in the land,
Oh, my honey lamb
Come on along, come on along,
Let me take you by the hand
Up to the man, up to the man,
Who's the leader of the band
And if you care to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime
Come on and hear, come on and hear
Alexander's Ragtime Band.

Little Bit in Love

Mmhmmm
I'm a little bit in love
Never felt this way before
Mmhmmm
Just a little bit in love
Or perhaps a little bit more

When he looks at me
Everything's hazy and it's all out of focus
When he touches me
I'm in the spell of a strange hocus-pocus
It's so- I don't know
I'm so- I don't know, I don't know
But I know if it's love
Then it's lovely!

Mmhmmm
It's so nice to be alive
When you meet someone
Who bewitches you
Will he be my all, or did I just fall
A little bit
A little bit in love?

How Are Things in Glocca Morra?

I hear a bird
A Londonderry bird
It well may be it's bringing me a cheering word.

I feel a breeze,
A River Shanon breeze
It well may be it's followed me across the seas.

Then tell me please:
How are things in Glocca Morra?
Is that little brook still leaping there?
Does it still run down to Donny Cove,
Through Killybegs, Kilkerry, and Kildare?

How are things in Glocca Morra?
Is that willow tree still weeping there?
Does that laddie with the twinkling eye
Come whistling by, and does he walk away
Sad and dreamy there, not to see me there?

So I ask each weeping willow
And each brook along every way
And each lad that comes a-whistling by,
Tooralay

How are things in Glocca Morra
This fine day?

How are things in Glocca Morra
This fine day?

How Can I Wait?

How can I wait, can I wait, 'til tomorrow comes?
How can I live 'til tomorrow comes?
How can I make every minute fly
'Til a shining moment went
I'll be seeing him again?

I'm gonna die gonna die
All be old and grey
Why is tomorrow so far away
How can I talk, can I breathe, can I eat?
What can I do with my hands and my feet?
How can I wait, can I wait, 'til tomorrow comes?

Starlight, go away, fade away, blow away
Sunrise, come again, make a new sunny day

Oh, what can I do can I think about?
How can my heart keep from jumpin' out?
How can I sleep?
Couldn't sleep if I tried!
Where can I run 'til I run to his side?
How can I wait 'til tomorrow comes?

A Lovely Night

A lovely night,
A lovely night,
A finer night you know you'll never see.
You meet your prince,
A charming prince
As charming as a prince will ever be.

The stars in the hazy heaven
Tremble above you
While he is whispering
"Darling I love you."

You say goodbye,
Away you fly
But on your lips you'll keep a kiss
All your life you'll dream of this
Lovely, lovely night.

(x3)

I Loved You Once in Silence

I loved you once in silence
And mis'ry was all I knew.
Trying so to keep my love from showing,
All the while not knowing you loved me too.

Yes, loved me in lonesome silence;
Your heart filled with dark despair.
Thinking love would flame in you forever,
And I'd never, never know the flame was there.

Then one day we cast away our secret longing;
The raging tide we held inside would hold no more.
The silence at last was broken!
We flung wide our prison door.
Ev'ry joyous word of love was spoken.

And now there's twice as much grief,
Twice the strain for us;
Twice the despair,
Twice the pain for us
As we had known before.

The silence at last was broken!
We flung wide our prison door.
Ev'ry joyous word of love was spoken.

And after all had been said,
Here we are, my love,
Silent once more,
And not far, my love,
From where we were before.

I Didn't Know What Time it Was

Once I was young ,
Yesterday, perhaps.
Danced with Jim and Paul and kissed some other chaps.
Once I was young,but never was naive.
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve.
And now I know I was naive.
 
I didn't know what time it was
Then I met you.
Oh, what a lovely time it was,
How sublime it was too!
I didn't know what day it was
You held my hand.
Warm like the month of May it was,
And I'll say it was grand.

Grand to be alive, to be young,
To be mad, to be yours alone!
Grand to see your face, feel your touch,
Hear your voice say I'm all your own.

I didn't know what year it was
Life was no prize.
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes.
I'm wise, and I know what time it is now.
