Stay With Me

When we're like this
a minute's kiss
goes fleeting by...
Too quick to say what I feel
When you're here in my arms,
The feeling is so right
If I could have my way I'd keep you here with me
and hold you close throughout the night.
Won't you stay with me?
For just a minute more...
You don't know how I miss you
when you get beyond that door,
'Cause you're everything
A man could hope for
in a woman.
The way you are,
the way you care,
the way you feel
would be enough
to make you oh, so complete
But the way you're looking
at me now...
I want to find a way
to keep your lovely look
inside my life, someway, somehow...
Won't you stay with me?
For just a minute more...
You don't know how I miss you
when you get beyond that door
'Cause you're everything
A man could hope for
In a woman.
I'm not afraid to be alone
I've practiced well.
But knowing you has made the world
feel so right
And I know I could love you
for a long, long time
I'll never be the one to say, "Goodbye"
So won't you stay with me?
For just a lifetime more...
You don't know how I miss you
when you ger beyond that door,
'cause you're everything
a man could hope for
In a woman.

I Hope There's a Girl

Trucking all around this big old world
I've met a lot of girls
And I've met some girls I know that I would marry
(...If they'd ask me!)
I can't seem to get my act together
When I meet a girl that I like
Seems I'm always at a loss
for conversation
B...B...B...B...B...But
I wish all the girls would love me
I wish all the girls would want me
I hope there's a girl
Who's nuts enough to marry me.
Even though I do get crazy
I cannot deny
I do get lonely
And I want someone to love me.
I don't want to die no bachelor
I want someone to love. 
And I want to go out big
With a dozen children!
(...And arthritis!)
She don't have to look like Venus
I don't brag about my style
'Long as she lets me wear my sneakers
When we're walking down the aisle.
She'll have such a sense of humor
She'll have a baby...
Grand Piano
We'll make love all night
And sing all day!
(...We'll die poor!)
I'll do the cookin'
She'll do the dishes
And if that goes against her wishes
We can just leave the dishes in the sink!
(...That's what I do!)
Even though I do get crazy
I cannot deny
I do get lonely
And I want someone to love me.
And so I'm singing...
I wish all the girls would love me
I wish all the girls would want me
I hope there's a girl
Who's nuts enough to marry me.
Trucking all around this big old world
I've met a lot of girls
And I've met some girls I know that I would marry
(...If they'd just ask me!!!)

Time Has Come

The time has come for parting gently.
The wine was light and sweet
and oh so mellow.
Oh but those crying eyes,
those laughing eyes and how they held me.
The wine is gone 
and all that remains is but a shadow...
The time has come
For counting memories and wishing well
Trying those pressing dreams we talked about
When no one really seemed to care but you and me.
The time has come
For pressing poems in some hidden page 
For keeping memories of gentle days
For now it's time to say goodbye
My special friend
The time has come for parting gently.
The wine was light and sweet
and oh so mellow.
Oh but it's over now
There's nothing to be said
it simply slipped away
The wine is gone
And we have grown our separate ways...
The time has come
For counting memories and wishing well
Trying those pressing dreams we talked about
When no one really seemed to care but you and me.
The time has come
No one can take away the times we shared.
It's hard to say it but the time has come
To say our last 'Goodbye.'
Goodbye.
