Lyrics
Catch a Falling Star
Perry Como

[Chorus]
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day

For love may come and tap you on the shoulder some starless night
Just in case you feel you want to hold her
You'll have a pocketful of starlight

[Chorus]

For love may come and tap you on the shoulder some starless night
Just in case you feel you want to hold her
You'll have a pocketful of starlight
(Pocketful of starlight, hm,hm,hm,hm,hm,hm)

[Chorus]

(Save it for a rainy, save it for a rainy, rainy, rainy, day)

For when your troubles start multiplyin' and they just might
It's easy to forget them without tryin'
With just a pocketful of starlight

[Chorus]

(Save it for a rainy day)
Save it for a rainy day

Perry Como - Jukebox Baby 1954

Monday, September 3, 2012

A popular television performer and recording artist, Perry Como produced numerous hit records with record sales so high the label literally stopped counting at Como's behest. His weekly television shows and seasonal specials were broadcast throughout the world and his popularity seemingly had no geographical or language boundaries. He was equally at ease in live performance and in the confines of a recording studio. His appeal spanned generations and he was widely respected for both his professional standards and the conduct in his personal life. In the official RCA Records Billboard Magazine memorial, his life was summed up in these few words: "50 years of music and a life well lived. An example to all."
Lyrics:

Juke Box Baby
by Perry Como

When my jukebox baby takes the floor
'Round the old jukebox in the candy store
The joint starts jumpin'
Till the roof comes tumblin' down
(Choo-choo-wah, choo-choo-wah, shooby-doo-wah)
Jukebox baby, you're the swingin'est doll in town

(Jukebox baby) put a nickel in for Maybelline
(Jukebox baby) drop another one for Seventeen
Jukebox baby) whisper to your daddy-o
Three little love words
(Kokomo)

How ya gonna get your homework done
When you keep that jukebox on the run
You don't dig Latin like ya dig that crazy sound
(Choo-choo-wah, choo-choo-wah, shooby-doo-wah)
Jukebox baby, you're the swingin'est doll in town

(Jukebox baby) I hear you knockin'
(Jukebox baby) Keep the coin box hoppin'
(Jukebox baby) Tell me sincerely
That you ain't forgettin' no Tina Marie

(Hip-hip, hop-hop, ho-ho, aww—hah)
Oh, jukebox baby, my jukebox baby, jukebox baby
(Jukebox baby, jukebox baby, jukebox baby)
All your lunchtime money goes down the slot
You could live on air if the music's hot
You just ain't quittin'
Till ya rock that clock around
(Choo-choo-wah, choo-choo-wah, shooby-doo-wah)
Jukebox baby, you're the swingin'est doll in town

(See ya later)
(Alligator)
Oh hey, ring-a-dinga
What a dungaree doll I've found
Run them there now
Jukebox baby, jukebox baby
You're the wingin'est
Dingin'est, swingin'est doll in town
