Lay Down Your Arms
My sweetheart is a soldier
As handsome as can be
But suddenly they sent him
away across the sea

So patiently I waited
until his leave was due
Then wrote and said "My darling,
I'll tell you what to do"

Come to the station
Jump from the train
March at the double
down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses en-twine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

A soldier is a soldier
And when he's on parade
An order is an order
And has to be obeyed

You've got to do your duty
wherever you may be
And now you're under orders
To hurry home to me

Come to the station
Jump from the train
March at the double
down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses en-twine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

The girl who loves a soldier
Is either sad or gray
'Cos first of all he's with her
And then he's far away
But soldiers have their duty
To answer to the call
And that is why I'm calling
The loudest of them all

Come to the station
Jump from the train
March at the double
down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses en-twine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

Title:Learnin' The Blues
Artist: Frank Sinatra - Contributor:Webmaster

[Words and Music by Delores Silver]


The tables are empty
The dance floor's deserted
You play the same love song
It's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning
Just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson
In learnin' the blues

The cigarettes you light
One after another
Won't help you forget her
And the way that you love her
You're only burnin'
A torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track
For learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone
The blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd
The blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep
The whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her
Soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk that floor
And wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone
The blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd
Those blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep
That whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her
Soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk the floor
And you'll wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' those blues
