MR. KISS KISS BANG BANG (Music: John Barry / Lyrics: Leslie Bricusse) He's tall and he's dark And like the shark, he looks for trouble That's why the zeros double Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang He's suave and he's smooth And he can soothe you like vanilla The gentleman's a killer Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Damoiselle's and danger Have filled the stranger's past Like the knife, he cuts through life Like ev'ry day's the last He's fast and he's cool He's from the school that loves and leaves 'em A pity if it grieves 'em Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's not a fool Damoiselle's and danger Have filled the stranger's past Like the knife, he cuts through life Like ev'ry day's the last He's fast and he's cool He's from the school that loves and leaves 'em A pity if it grieves 'em Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's not a fool No, he's no fool He's no fool He is no fool Another song that was originally considered, but eventually rejected, was one from Johnny Cash..... THUNDERBALL (Written by John R. Cash) Performed by Johnny Cash There's a rumble in the sky and all the world can hear it call They shudder at the fury of the mighty Thunderball (Thunderball) The power of her engines now has drowned in the sea But the deadly force from within her is somewhere running free (Running free) Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand (Thunderball) Somewhere there is a man who could stop the thing in time He is known by very few, but he's feared by all in crime (All in crime) By courage and by fighting, he has not been known to fall But neither has the fury of the mighty Thunderball (Thunderball) Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand (Thunderball) Money hungry minds need a thread to launch a scheme But those who hold the Thunderball could rule the world, it seems Cannot the peaceful world find a clue to where she's gone The silent sea won't answer now, but terror lingers on (Lingers on) Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand (Thunderball) Thunderball *********************************** CASINO ROYALE (1967) The title music was written by Burt Bacharach and performed by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass.

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE (Music: John Barry / Lyrics: Leslie Bricusse) Performed by Julie Rogers You only live twice, no more than twice And each life you live, you're playing with dice The first game is love, beware, it's nice The second is death, whose cold charms entice you You gamble with danger, you gamble with love Each one is a stranger in a black velvet glove And if you should lose, you'll pay the price Good luck with the dice, you only live twice You gamble with danger, you gamble with love Each one is a stranger in a black velvet glove And if you should lose, you'll pay the price Good luck with the dice, you only live twice *********************************** ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (1969) There was no vocal performance to accompany the opening credits, but the following songs were heard, in full or in part, during the film.....
