You Are Adorable ...

The Tokens 




A, you're adorable
B, you're so beautiful
C, you're a cutie, full of charms
D, you're a darling
And E, you're exciting
And F, you're a feather in my arms

G, you look good to me
And H, you're so heavenly
I, you're the one I idolize
J, we're like Jack and Jill
K, you're so kissable
L, as the love-light in your eyes

M, N, O, P
I could go on all day
Q, R, S, T
Alphabetically speaking you're okay
And U , made my life complete
V , means you're very sweet
W, X, Y, Z

It's fun to wonder through
The alphabet with you
To tell you what you mean to me

M, N, O, P
I could go on all day

It's fun to wonder through
The alphabet with you
To tell you what you mean to me

A star fell from Heaven right into my arms
A brighter star I know I´ve never seen
Then I found out that it was only you with all your charms
Who came into my life to fill a dream

A fallen star is what you are
The twinkle in your eyes came from the sky
you must have strayed from the milky way
A fallen star that's what you are

Night train To Memphis at Sun Records


Take that Night Train To Memphis
Take that Night Train To Memphis
And when you arrive at the station
I'll be right there to meet you
I'll be right there to greet you
So don't turn down my invitation.


Halle-lu-jah!
Halle-lu-jah!
We'll be shoutin' hallelu-jah all the day
Oh we'll have a jubilee
Down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout halle-lu-jah all the way.

Take that Night Train To Memphis
Take that Night Train To Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at three-fifty-seven; arrive at eleven
And I'll be shoutin' "Halle-lu-jah!"



Take that Night Train To Memphis
Take that Night Train To Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin',
I'm not kiddin', I'm not jokin'
I'll soon be with my girl, I'm hopin'.
