Getting to Know You

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you
Getting to like you, getting to hope you'll like me
Getting to know you, putting it my way but nicely
You are precisely my cup of tea

Getting to know you, getting to feel free and easy
When I am with you getting to know what to say
Haven't you noticed suddenly I'm bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you, day by day

I Whistle a Happy Tune

Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect
And whistle a happy tune so no one will suspect I'm afraid
While shivering in my shoes I strike a careless pose
And whistle a happy tune and no one ever knows I'm afraid

The result of this deception is very strange to tell
For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well
I whistle a happy tune and ev'ry single time
The happiness in the tune convinces me that I'm not afraid
Make believe you 're brave and the trick will take you far
You may be as brave as you make believe you are!

Shall We Dance

Shall we dance? On a bright cloud of music shall we fly
Shall we dance? Shall we then say "good-night" and mean "good-bye"
Or, perchance when the last little star has left the sky
Shall we still be together with our arms around each other
And shall you be my new romance?
On the clear understanding that this kind of thing can happen
Shall we dance? Shall we dance? Shall we dance?
