THIS IS ALL I ASK (Gordon Jenkins) Nat King Cole - 1958 Tony Bennett (with the Ralph Sharon Trio) - 1963 Burl Ives - 1963 Perry Como - 1963 Carmen McRae - 1963 Jimmy Durante - 1964 Robert Goulet - 1964 Frank Sinatra - 1965 Johnny Mathis - 1965 Jack Jones - 1966 Tiny Tim - 1968 Harry Nilsson - 1973 George Benson - 1989 Shirley Horn - 2003 Nancy Wilson - 2006 Tony Bennett & Josh Groban - 2011 Also recorded by: Howard Keel; Dorothy Squires; Mabel Mercer; Matt Monro .............and many others. As I approach the prime of my life I find I have the time of my life Learning to enjoy at my leisure All the simple pleasures And so I happily concede This is all I ask, this is all I need Beautiful girls** Walk a little slower when you walk by me** Lingering sunsets Stay a little longer with the lonely sea Children everywhere When you shoot at bad men, shoot at me Take me to that strange enchanted land Grownups seldom understand Wandering rainbows Leave a bit of colour for my heart to own Stars in the sky Make my wish come true before the night has flown And let the music play As long as there's a song to sing And I will stay younger than spring **For female recordings, these lines are sometimes replaced with: Soft spoken men Speak a little softer when you speak to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
