Farewell to Arms

(Wrubel / Silver)

Carroll Gibbons and the Savoy Hotel Orpheans


Farewell to arms, to arms that caressed me
Goodbye to love, that once was mine
Farewell to lips, that tenderly kissed me
Goodbye to dreams that were divine

No matter where I go, my heart will be with you
No matter where you are. I'll always worship you

And, so. Farewell to arms to arms that caressed me
Farewell to arms, farewell to love


Something To Do With Spring

(Noel Coward)

Carroll Gibbons and the Savoy Hotel Orpheans


The sun is shining where clouds have been
Maybe it's something to do with Spring
I feel no older than seventeen
Maybe it's something to do with Spring

It's something I can't express
A sort of lilt in the air
A lyrical loveliness
Seems everywhere
The dew grass glitters like diamond rings
Maybe it's something to do with Spring
