469b-YESTERDAY ONCE MORE – Mi M

Carpenters

 

When i was young

i'd listen to the radio

waiting for my favorite songs

when they played

i'd sing alone

it made me smile...

 

Those were such happy times

and not so long ago

how i wondered

where they'd gone

but they're back again

just like a long lost friend

all the songs i loved so well

 

every sha la la la

every whoa oh oh

still shines

 

every shing a ling a ling

that they'er starting

to sing's so fine

 

*when they get to the part

where he's breakin her heart

 

it can really make me cry

just like before

it's yersterday once more

 

Looking back on how it

was in year gone by

and the good time that i had

makes today seem rather sad

so much has changed

 

it was songs of love

that i would sing to then

and i'd memorize each word

those old melodies

still sound so good to me

as they melt the years away

 

every sha la la la

every whoa oho oh

still shines

every shing a ling aling

that they staring

to sing's so fine

 

*all my best memories come back clearly to me

some can even make me cry

just like before it's yesterday once more

487a-RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS – C1 Re M

Carpenters

 

Talkin' to myself and feeling old.

 Sometimes I'd like to quit;

 Nothing ever seems to fit;

 

 Hangin' around,

nothing to do but frown;

 Rainy days and Mondays

always get me down

 

 What I've got they used to call the blues:

 Nothin' is really wrong;

 Feelin' like I don't belong;

 

 Walkin' around,

some kind of lonely clown;

 Rainy days and Mondays

always get me down

 

 Funny, but it seems

that I always wind up-a here with you;

 Nice to know somebody loves me.

 

 Funny, but it seems

that it's the only thing to do:

 Run and find the one who loves me.

 

What I feel is come and gone before:

 No need to talk it out;

 We know what it's all about.

 

 Hangin' around,

nothing to do but frown;

 Rainy days and Mondays

always get me down

 

 Funny but it seems

that it's the only thing to do,

 Run and find the one

who loves me

 

 (+1)What I feel is come and gone before:

 No need to talk it out;

 We know what it's all about.

 

 Hangin' around,

nothing do to but frown;

 Rainy days and Mondays

always get me down

 Rainy Days And Mondays,

Rainy Days And Mondays

487b-CLOSE TO YOU – Do M

Carpenters

 

Why do birds

suddenly appear

Everytime

you are near?

 

Just like me,

they long to be

Close to you...

 

Why do stars

fall off from the sky

Everytime

you walk by?

 

Just like me,

they long to be,

Close to you...

 

*On the day that you were born

The angels got together

They decided to create

a dream come true

 

*So they sprinkled moon

dust in your hair

And put a starlight in

your eyes so blue

 

That is why

all the girls in town

Follow you,

all around

 

Just like me,

they long to be

Close to you...

 

Just like me,

they long to be

Close to you....

 

Just like me,

they long to be

Close to you....

 

Aah...

Close to you....

488a-TOP OF THE WORLD – C1 La M

Carpenters

 

Such a feelin’s comin’ over me

There is wonder in most everything i see

Not a cloud in the sky

Got the sun in my eyes

And i

won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

 

Everything i want the world to be

Is now coming true especially for me

And the reason is clear

It’s because you are here

You’re the nearest thing

to heaven that i’ve seen

 

I’m on the

top of the world lookin’

down on creation

And the only explanation i can find

Is the love that i’ve found

ever since you’ve been around

Your love’s put me

at the top of the world

 

Something in the wind has learned my name

And it’s tellin’ me

that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees

and the touch of the breeze

There’s a pleasin’ sense

of happiness for me

 

There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through

i hope that i will find

That tomorrow will be

just the same for you and me

All i need will

you be mine if you are here

 

I’m on the

top of the world lookin’

down on creation

And the only explanation i can find

Is the love that i’ve found

ever since you’ve been around

Your love’s put me

at the top of the world

527b-HURTING EACH OTHER – Re M

Carpenters

 

No one in the world

Ever had a love as sweet as my love

For nowhere in the world

Could there be a boy as true as you love

 

All my love

I give gladly to you

All your love

You give gladly to me

Tell me why then

Oh why should it be that

 

 

(*) we go on hurting each other

We go on hurting each other

Making each other cry

Hurting each other

 

Without ever knowing

Why

 

Closer than the leaves

On a weepin willow baby we are

Closer dear are we

Than the simple letters a and b are

 

All my life

I could love only you

All your life

 

You could love only me

Tell me why then

Oh why should it be that

 

Repeat (*)

 

(**) cant we stop hurting each other

Gotta stop hurting each other

Making each other cry

Breaking each others heart

Tearing each other apart

 

Repeat (**)

528b-SING A SONG – C1 Re M

Carpenters

 

Sing,

Sing out loud

Sing out strong

Sing of good things not bad

Sing of happy not sad

 

Sing,

sing a song

Make it simple to last

Your whole life long

 

Dont worry that its not

Good enough for anyone

Else to hear

Just sing,

+ 1 tone

La la la la la

La la la la la la...

 

Chorus:

Sing,

sing a song

Let the world sing along

Sing of love there could be

Sing for you and for me

008a-THIS MASQUERADE – C1 Mi m

Carpenters

 

Are we really happy

With this lonely game we play

Looking for the right

Words to say

 

Searching but not finding

Understanding anyway

We're lost

In this masquerade

 

*Both afraid to say

we're just too far away

From being close together

from the start

 

We tried to talk it over

 but the words got in the way

We're lost inside

this lonely game we play

 

*Thoughts of leaving disappear

Each  time I see your eyes

And no matter how

Hard I try

 

To understand the reason

Why we carry on this way

We're lost

       In a masquerade
