Burns) The Revelers - 1927 I realize within your eyes for me there lies a paradise What other bliss is like a kiss from pretty lips I idolize You are so sweet and you are so neat A girl like you I'd never meet Just to behold you is a treat that's hard to beat Nothing I do can show how true I am to you, my only one Cuddle up near and let me hear a word to cheer your lonely one Your winning style my heart beguiles For one sweet smile I'd walk a mile Let me enfold you in my arms awhile When you're near the birds sing in the trees pretty harmonies All the world is humming a melody When away from you I may be straying Then my heart keeps saying You're the heart of me, part of me, all of me Nola, heed and listen while I plead, you're the one I need Life for me is nothing but misery Nola, Nola, hear your lonesome lovesick sweetheart calling Nola ********** NOLA (Music: Felix Arndt / Words: Sunny Skylar) Billy Williams - 1959 Nola is like a dream come true, she's sweet and unaffected Ev'rything Nola seems to do is really unexpected Nola has twinkling eyes of blue and cherry lips perfected Ev'rything nice like sugar and spice is Nola Walking along the thoroughfare, she always draws attention All of the fellows stop and stare, she's called the fourth dimension But if they think that she could care, it's mere misapprehension Wait'll you see the angel and me, it's Nola On her hand she wears a di'mond ring, mighty pretty thing I'm the one who saved and bought it There's a house with roses all around it, awf'ly glad I found it Lucky I can just afford it When she's near, the winter turns to spring, bells begin to ring There's a magic charm about her She's divine and she's mine all mine I'm in love, so in love with No-la Eyes that haunt you lips that taunt you Kiss that tastes like wine If you knew her you'd pursue her But she's mine all mine Nola is like a dream come true, she's sweet and unaffected Ev'rything Nola seems to do is really unexpected Nola has twinkling eyes of blue and cherry lips perfected Ev'rything nice like sugar and spice is Nola ********** (Contributed by Bill Huntley - January 2008)
