If I didn't know
Serenade in blue
At last
Moonlight serenade
Manhattan serenade
White Christmas
Lazy
Road to Morocco
Moonlight becomes you
I heard that song before
But not for me
I heard you cry tonight
All or nothing at all
It started all over again
In the blue of evening
Song is you
Sunday, Monday, or always
Pistol packin' mama
People say we're in love
Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
Out of my dreams
I cain't say no
Surrey with the fringe on top
Poor Jud is daid

As time goes by
Paper doll
For me and my gal
That old black magic
One for my baby (And one for the road)
Brazil
You'll never know how much I miss you
It can't be wrong
Put your arms around me honey (I never knew any girl like you)
In my arms
Taking a chance on love
Why don't you do right?
They're either too young or too old
I'll walk alone
You'd be so nice to come home to
Comin' in on a wing and a prayer

My heart tells me
Till then
Shoo-shoo baby
Milkman, keep those bottles quiet
Besame mucho
Artistry in rhythm
And her tears flowed like wine
Straighten up and fly right
You always hurt the one you love
I'm making believe
Into each life some rain must fall
Time waits for no one
I'll get by
Trolley song
Gettin' corns for my country
Tumblin' tumbleweeds
Sweet dreams, sweetheart
You can always tell a Yank
