Ar Lan y Môr – Endaf Emlyn

Beside the sea red roses growing
Beside the sea white lilies showing
Beside the sea their beauty telling
My true love sleeps within her dwelling

Beside the sea the stones lie scattered
Where tender words in love were uttered
While all around there grew the lily
And sweet branches of rosemary

Beside the sea blue pebbles lying
Beside the sea gold flowers glowing
Beside the sea are all things fairest
Beside the sea I found my dearest

Full the sea of sand and billows
Full the egg of whites and yellows
Full the woods of leaf and flower
Full my heart of love for ever.

Fair the sun at new day’s dawning
Fair the rainbow’s colours shining
Fair the summer, fair as heaven
Fairer yet the face of Elin.

Tiger Feet – Mud

First & Second Law – Flanders & Swann

It’s Good To Have You Near Again – Leontyne Price

South Of The Border – Frank Sinatra

Ein Lied Kann Eine Brücke Sein – Joy Flemming

There are songs to make you smile
There’s songs to make you sad
But with a happy song to sing
It never seems so bad
To me came this melody
So I’ve tried to put in words how I feel
Tomorrow will be for you and me
