HE PLEASES ME

Music by Henry Mancini
Lyrics by Robert Wells
Vocal by Julie Andrews

He's no more than a man
Nothing special that you'd run to see
He's a child to be sure, at times insecure
But he pleases me.

Oh when I'm in his arms
And the last little star slowly dies
I'm enchanted to be the me
That I see in his eyes.

He's a man, nothing more
Sort of clumsy and absent of mind
Not the kind of a beau I dreamed long ago
That I would find.

He's my lover, my friend
What more could I ask him to be
So in our little plot
The mystery is what he sees in me.

Why is it I never doubt him
When I've known all along
Now and then the very best of men must roam
Sure I get lonely without him.

But a man, right or wrong
The more you bind him
The less you'll find him home.

He's no more than a man
Just a weaver of wishes and dreams
Very shy, he's mature
The man he needs to be
And he pleases me.

IT'S EASY TO SAY

Music by Henry Mancini
Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager
Vocal by Julie Andrews and Dudley Moore
There is another version with Chorus

It's easy to say it's over
It's easy to say we're the best of friends
You walk away and for a while
You try the summer of a younger smile
But the memory never ends
You could loose your mind
But then you'll find.

It's easy to say I love you
There's only one way to say I love you
You could search the years away
That old cliche is the first of May
To old or new love.

It's easy to say, easy as ABC
I love you.

It's easy to say, easy as ABC
I love you, love you, love you, love you ....

DON'T CALL IT LOVE

Music by Henry Mancini
Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager
Chorus

Looks to me like we're losin' our shine
We go dancin' but we're not keepin' time
Like before
So don't call it love no more.

No one's talkin' but it's all been said
Fancy dinin' but nobody gets fed
Not like before
So don't call it love no more.

Oh baby, once you and me, we had it made
When did we start to fall
Or did we look the other way
Or maybe we never had it at all.

* Tell your stories to all of our friends
If they ask you you can say
That we ended happily
But don't call it love
When you're talkin' to me.

(*Repeat)

GET IT ON

Music and lyrics by Henry Mancini

Get it on, get it on, get it on, baby
(Repeat through song).

I HAVE AN EAR FOR LOVE

Music by Henry Mancini
Lyrics by Robert Wells
Vocal by "The Reverend" (Max Showalter)

When you are near
Though we're under a cloud
Why do I hear
Rainbows that shine out loud
Why is there music
When I'm kissing your glove
Could it be
That I have an ear for love.

Why when you smile
Do those bells ting-a-ling
Turning my heart
Into a thumping thing
Chattering magpies
Coo coo coo like a dove
Are they saying
That I have an ear for love.

In the clatter of cars
And the patter of shoes
You sigh, a sonata begins
I say nota to the blues.

When you appear
Though we're in a typhoon
Why do I hear
Snowflakes that fall in tune
Glee clubs of moonbeams
Sing your name in the blue
When I hold you near, my love
Look into my ear, my love
You'll see that what I say hear, my love
Is true.
