(Orchestral Overture) All around, there's the sound of the midsummers night Bells in the air are ringing evrywhere I can hear footsteps that pass on the street And lovers rushing to meet Here alone I can only imagine the sight Me on the town, in some bewitching gown But I just wait at the end of the line As bells are ringing, the bells keep ringing Oh why, oh why can't the next call be mine (Orchestral Break) Thank you, thank you, thank you Susanswerphone, Ah-ahhh!

I'm in love with a man Plaza-O-Double-Four-Double-Three What a perfect relationship And that's how things should always be Our love can never lose its mystery 'Cause I'll never meet him And he'll never meet me No, he'll never meet me What does he look like My sleeping Prince What does he look like Tough as nails with a black cigar As handsome as a movie star Stern as an eagle, shy as a dove A face that only a mother could love It doesn't matter what he is I'm HIS, HIS, HIS! But he's still just a voice Plaza-0-Double-Four-Double-Three What a perfect relationship I can't see him, he can't see me He calls me "Mum", he thinks I'm sixty-three And I'll never meet him And he'll never meet me No, he'll never meet me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2006) ***** INDEPENDENT (ON MY OWN) Sydney Chaplin (Broadway Production) - 1956 Marc Kudisch (Broadway Revival) – 2001 I'm enjoying the delights of the solitary life. To the ties that bind I've bid goodbye. I'm the spirit of "Seventy-six" complete with drum and fife. Since my personal Fourth of July. Independent, self sufficient, got nobody to rely on. Independent, self reliant, got shoulder I can cry on. Now I'm livin', I'm on my own. Going it alone. I don't need anyone And no one needs me. No need for anyone to help me mix martinis, Roast the wienies, bake the blinis, now that I'm free. Self sufficient, self supporting, trav'lin' light and flying solo, Ev'ry day is Independence Day, Hooray! Free and easy, blithe and breezy, going it alone, I'm independent and on my own. Independent, self sufficient, got nobody to rely on. Independent, self reliant, got shoulder I can cry on. Now I'm livin', I'm on my own. Going it alone. I don't need anyone And no one needs me.

Self sufficient, self supporting, trav'lin' light and flying solo, Ev'ry day is Independence Day, Hooray! Free and easy, blithe and breezy, going it alone, I'm independent and on my own. (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - February 2006) ***** DO IT YOURSELF Dean Martin (Film Soundtrack) – 1960 Polly Bergen - 1961 You've gotta do it, you've gotta do it, Gotta do it all alone. No one else will do it for you, You're on your own. Do it. It may be love or war or mopping up the floor, but just do it. Don't send a friend who's true to pitch your woo for you or you'll rue it. Do it yourself. Don't Fake it. If You're a fake, you won't make it, Wait for your break, and then take it, For time and tide they wait for no man, go, go, go, man. Do it. To prove the point at hand just look at old Miles Standish who blew it, He said "John Alden, will you go and ask Priscilla to do it?" Miles got the heaveho. "Man," Priscilla said, "Now that Miles is gone, Speak for yourself, dear John." He blew it, so do it, do it, Do it yourself.

Debussy is Del Mar Humperdinck is Hollywood César Franck is Fairgrounds Sibelius is Sportsmans Park Berlioz is Bainbridge Hindemith is Hawthorn Offenbach is Omaha Ev'rybody, all together now (Who is Beethoven? Belmont Park, it's a simple little system) (Who's Puccini? Pimlico, simple little system) (Who's Tchaikovsky? Churchill Downs) (And Shostakovich is Saratoga) What is Handel?
