Danny

My name should be trouble
My name should be woe
For trouble and heartache
Is all that I know
But Danny, yes, Danny is my name

My life has been empty
My heart has been torn
It must have been rainy, oh yeah,
The night I was born
Oh Danny, oh Danny is my name

I'm so afraid of tomorrow
So tired of today
They say that love is the answer
But love never came my way

I'm writing a letter
To someone I know
So if you should find it
And if you're alone
Oh Danny, yes, Danny is my name

Oh Danny, yes, Danny is my name
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Written by Weisman and Wise




Danny Boy

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The summer's gone and all the roses dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bye

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy I love you so

But if he come and all the roses dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
He'll come here and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ava there for me

And I shall feel, oh soft you tread above me
And then my grave will richer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall rest in peace until you come to me

Written by Frederic Wetherly



Dainty Little Moonbeams

Girls in kimonos, shy little flowers
Smiling from beneath their parasols
Dainty little moonbeams, delicate as China
Gentle little oriental dolls



Dark Moon

Dark moon, way up high up in the sky
Oh, tell me why, oh tell me why
You've lost your splendor
Dark moon, what is the cause your life withdraws
Is it because, is it because I've lost my love

Mortals have dreams of love's perfect schemes
But they don't realize, their love can sometimes bring the

Datin

Datin' is a game that grown-ups play
Datin' means acting in a silly way
Datin' makes girls start wiggle walking
Datin' makes a guy start baby talking

Dizzy like children on a merry-go-round
Grown-ups are the biggest kids I've found
You'd think they belong in a baby carriage
They're doing things that lead to marriage
But don't you laugh at what they do, oh no
'Cause some day you'll be datin' too

Datin' makes a guy comb his hair just right
His girl can mess it up when they kiss good-night
Datin' makes you quarrel and say you'll break up
And just because it's so much fun to make up

Children can't wait to grow up but then
They're datin and they're acting like kids again
You'd think they belong in a baby carriage
They're doing things that lead to marriage
But don't you laugh at what they do, oh no
Some day you'll be datin' too

Written by Wise and Starr



Devil In Disguise

You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise

You fooled me with your kisses
You cheated and you schemed
Heaven knows how you lied to me
You're not the way you seemed

You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise

I thought that I was in heaven
But I was sure surprised
Heaven help me, I didn't see
The devil in your eyes

You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel

But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise

When nothin' is right from mornin' till night

Ya get up in the morning and turn the shower on

Yeah! Girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls, girls
You're at a drive-in movie
With a cute brunette
A countin' on the kisses that you figure to get
Closer, closer, then she hollers ho!

You're on a Sunday picnic
And then it starts to pour
You run through poison ivy, scratch until you're sore
Ants come dancin', carry off the bread
Didja' ever get one of them days
When you should a-stayed in bed

Didja' ever
Didja' ever get
Didja' ever get one
Didja' ever get one of them

Dirty, Dirty Feeling

I've got a dirty, dirty feelin'
Dirty feelin's goin' on
You know I almost hit the ceilin'
When I woke up and you were gone

I took you in when you were hungry
And now your cuttin' out on me
I'm gonna help you little darlin'
That ain't the way it's gonna be

I hear you're pretty good at runnin'
But pretty soon you'll slip and fall
That's when Iíll drag you home with me girl
I'm gonna chain you to the wall

You know Iím lookin' for you baby
I ain't gonna take it layin' down
I heard that you were cookin' baby
Way on the other side of town

I've got a dirty, dirty feelin'
Dirty feelin's goin' on
You know I almost hit the ceilin'
When I woke up and you were gone

Dixieland Rock

Well down in New Orleans at the Golden Goose
I grabbed a green-eyed dolly that was on the loose
Well I dig that music, well she said me too
I said pretty baby come on and let's do

The Dixieland rock 
Well the Dixieland rock 
Let your hair down Sugar, shake it free
And do the Dixieland rock with me

With the blue light shining on her swinging hips
She got the drummer so nervous that he lost his sticks
The cornet player hit a note that's flat
The tromboner hit him while the poor cat sat

The Dixieland rock 
Well the Dixieland rock 
Let your hair down Sugar, shake it free
And do the Dixieland rock with me

I was all pooped out and when the clock struck four
But she said no daddy can't leave the floor
She wore a clinging dress that fit so tight
She couldn't sit down so we danced all night

The Dixieland rock 
Well the Dixieland rock 
Let your hair down Sugar, shake it free
And do the Dixieland rock with me
Let your hair dance Sugar, shake it
And do the Dixieland rock with me

Written by Frank and Schraeder



Doin' The Best I Can

I gave my heart
I gave my love
Oh ho, my darling
I am true
Doin' the best 
The best I can
But it's not good enough for you

I tried so hard
So hard to please
Oh ho, my darling
What more can I do
Doin' the best 
The best I can
But it's not good enough for you

You know I was the kind who'd run
Any time you'd call
I guess I was the only one
Who didn't mind at all
I'll be a dreamer
I'll be a fool
Oh ho, my darling
My whole life through
Doin' the best 
The best I can
But it's not good enough for you

You know I was the kind who'd run
Any time you'd call
I guess I was the only one
Who didn't mind at all
I'll be a dreamer
I'll be a fool
Oh ho, my darling
My whole life through
Doin' the best 
The best I can
But it's not good enough for you
But it's not good enough for you

Dominic

Dominic, Dominic why are you stallin'
Don't you hear love callin' to you
Moo, moo, move your little foot do

Dominic, Dominic pick one of them ticker
There's acres and acres to choose
Oh, oh, only a fool would refuse

I, I, If I had your trouble
Life would be double good sweet
There'd be no grass growin' under my feet

Listen Dominic, Dominic when will you hunger
You ain't gettin' younger my friend
Love, love, love 'em all right to the end

I, I, I can't understand you, leavin' them beauties forlorn
It's time to take the old bull by the horn
Come on Dominic, Dominic, they're itchin' and twitchin'
Better start pickin' some woo
Moo, moo, move your little foot do!

Written by Weisman and Wayne



Doncha' Think It's time

I've been yearning for a little romance
I wanna know when you gonna give me a chance
Kiss me honey, tell me your mine
Doncha' think it's time

I've been yearning for a sweet embrace
Rub my hair till I'm a total disgrace
Kiss me honey make my life divine
Doncha' think it's time

I don't wanna walk without you
Walkin' right by my side
It hurts me to see you talkin'
With the other guys

I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me honey tell me you're mine
Doncha' think it's time

I don't wanna walk without you
Walkin' right by my side
It hurts me to see you talkin'
With the other guys

I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me honey tell me you're mine
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time

Do Not Disturb

Let's take the phone off the hook
Turn the lights way down low
Baby put down that book
Tell the maid to go

Do not disturb
Hang the sign on the door
Do not disturb
It's time to make love
And I can't wait anymore

I'll just pull down the blind
Now come over here
I've got one thing in mind
Let's get comfortable dear

Do not disturb
Hang the sign on the door
Do not disturb
It's time to make love
And I can't wait anymore

Everything's right tonight
Mmmm, it's great when we kiss
Now your arms hold me tight
Let's stay like this

Written by Baum, Kaye and Giant



Don't

Don't, don't, that's what you say
Each time that I hold you this way,
When I feel like this and I want to hold you,
baby, don't say don't.

Don't, don't leave my embrace
For here in my arms is your place
When the night grows cold and I want to hold you,
baby, don't say don't.

If you think that this is just a game
I'm playing
If you think that I don't mean
ev'ry word I'm saying
Don't, don't, don't, don't,
Don't feel that way
I'm your love and yours I will stay

This you can believe
I will never leave you 
Heave knows I won't
Baby, don't say don't

Written by Leiber And Stoller



Don't Ask Me Why

I'll go on loving you 
Don't ask me why 
Don't know what else to do
Don't ask me why

How sad my heart would be 
If you should go 
Though you're not good for me
I want you so

It's not the kind
Of love I dream about
But it's the kind
That I can't live without

You're all I'm longing for 
Don't say good-bye
I need you more and more
Don't ask me why
I need you more and more
Don't ask me why

Written by Wise and Weisman



Don't Be Cruel

You know I can be found,
sitting home all alone,
If you can't come around, 
at least please telephone.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

Baby, if I made you mad 
for something I might have said,
Please, let's forget the past, 
the future looks bright ahead,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't stop thinking of me, 
don't make me feel this way,
Come on over here and love me, 
you know what I want you to say.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Why should we be apart?
I really love you baby, cross my heart.

Let's walk up to the preacher 
and let us say I do,
Then you'll know you'll have me, 
and I'll know that I'll have you,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't Cry Daddy

Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head
My pillow still wet 
From last night tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee-cup
Kept crying but
And ringing in my ears

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don't cry

Why are children always first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It's true, but somehow 
It just don't seem right
'Cause ev'ry time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so
I wonder will it be the same tonight

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don't cry
Oh, daddy, please don't cry

Written by Scott Davis



Don't Forbid Me

Don't forbid me to hold you tight
Darling don't forbid me to hold you tight
Take me in your lovin' arms
'cause it's cold and I can keep you warm

Don't forbid me to talk sweet nothings
Don't forbid me to talk sweet talk
Take me in your arms baby please
Cause it's cold, it's cold and your lips might freeze

Written by Charles Singleton



Don't Leave Me Now

Don't leave me now
Now that I need you
How blue and lonely Iíd be
If you should say we're through

Don't break my heart
This heart that loves you
They'll just be nothing for me
If you should leave me now

What good is dreamin'
If I must dream all alone by myself
Without you darling
My arms would gather dust

Come to these arms
These arms that need you
Don't close your eyes to my plea
Don't leave me now

Written by Schroeder and Weisman



Don't Think Twice It's All Right

There ain't no use to sit and wonder why babe
If you don't know by now
There ain't no use to sit and wonder why babe
If you don't know by now
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Well look out your window baby I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm movin' on
Yeah, don't think twice it's all right

I've headed down that long lonesome road, girl
Where I'm bound I can't tell
Goodbye is too good a word girl
So I'll say Fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I, I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
Oo, Don't think twice it's all right

Take it on

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Well look out your window baby I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm movin' on
Yeah don't think twice it's all right

There ain't no use to sit and wonder why babe
It don't matter anyhow
There ain't no use to sit and wonder why babe
If you don't know by now

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Well look out your window baby I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' on
Oh don't think twice it's all right

I'm headed down that long lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound I can't tell
Goodbye is too good a word girl
I'll just say Fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I, I don't mind
You just sorta wasted my favorite time
Oo, Don't think twice it's all right
Wow

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Well look out your window baby I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travellin' on
Oh don't think twice it's all right

I've headed down that long lonesome road, girl
Where I'm bound I can't tell
Goodbye is too good a word girl

Do The Clam

Hey everybody gather round
Listen to that bongo sound
Grab the first one in your reach
Now we're going to shake the beach

Do the Clam, do the Clam
Grab your barefoot baby by the hand
Turn and tease, hug and squeeze
Dig right in and do the Clam

You can get your heart to spin
On the outside looking in
Moon ain't gonna last all night
Well let's work up an appetite

Do the Clam, do the Clam
Grab your barefoot baby by the hand
Turn and tease, hug and squeeze
Dig right in and do the Clam

Everybody's got that beat 
Well listen to those happy feet 
Ain't you glad that you found out
What the Clam is all about

Grab your barefoot baby by the hand
Turn and tease, hug and squeeze
Dig right in and do the Clam

Do The Vega

Do the Vega take a chance and do the vega
If you dance it you'll have fun
The fever gets ya and then I'll bet ya
You'll shake like the sun of a gun

First you make the right connection
Choose the one whose your selection
Though you risk your reputation
You'll increase you're circulation

Do the Vega take a chance and do the vega
If you dance it you'll have fun
The fever gets ya and then I'll bet ya
You'll shake like the sun of a gun

Roll and keep you're shoulders busy
Like a wheel spin 'till you're dizzy
Kick your heels when you've a notion
Shake and shimmy that's the motion

Do the Vega take a chance and do the vega
If you dance it you'll have fun
The fever gets ya and then I'll bet ya
You'll shake like the sun of a gun

Do the Vega take a chance and do the vega

Double Trouble

Some guys fall in love with one girl, I gotta fall for two
There's just so much lovin' that one heart's supposed to do
So I go around with my heart draggin' on the ground
Doggin' me around, I'm the sorriest sight in town

I got double trouble, I got double trouble
I got double trouble twice as much as anybody else oh yeah!

I guess there's gotta be two dark clouds hangin' over me
My future looks a bumpy as a matchbox on the sea
Every time I think that I have finally got it made
Some losin' cards are played, I just can't make the grade

I got double trouble, I got double trouble
I got double trouble twice as much as anybody else oh yeah!

I got double trouble, I got double trouble
I got double trouble twice as much as anybody else oh yeah!

Down In The Alley

Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Jane Jane
Down in the alley, just you and me
We're going bowlin' till half past three
Just rockin' and reelin', we'll get that feelin'
Down in the alley, oh baby gee
I wake you now and dig you later
'cause you're a fine sweet potato
We'll have a ball and that ain't all
Down in the alley, just you and me
The clock is striking a mournful sound
This time of evening my love comes down
That's when I'm missin' your kind of kissin'
Down in the alley, that's where I'll be
Down in the alley, we sure have fun
We just get started 'bout half past one
So if you're 'round just come on down
Down in the alley and you will see

Do You Know Who I Am

Do you know who I am
Have you have any idea who I am
Yes it's been quite a while
And it's so good to see you again

It's so dark in this place
That I can't see your face
May believe Oh I see
Does he know who I am
And what once was between you and me

Do you know how I tried
Have you any idea how I tried
Not to keep you in sight
Do you know darling how much I cried

I remember you said
That you had to forget about me, and be free
Do you know who I am or have you forgot about me

Do you think there's a chance
You and I could start over again
Is there a prayer you still pray
Or has it just been too long and we're through
Well, what about you and him
Oh he's only a friend
Well I see there's still a chance for me

Well maybe some other time, in some other place
With our love in your heart and a smile on your face
You will know who I am
When that time comes you'll know who I am
You will know who I am
When that time comes you'll know who I am
You will know who I am
When that time comes you'll know who I am

Drum Of The Islands

Drums of the islands you're beating in my heart
You're with me no matter where I roam
If ever I wander if ever we're apart
I know that you will lead me home
If I should journey across the deep blue sea
I'll never forget these coral shores
Drums of the islands I hear you calling me
And I'll return forever yours
I love each valley each grain of sand each hill
The flowers the music of the isles
These are the things I love and always will
Though I may roam ten thousand miles
