Songs :

  • Are you lonesome tonight ? by Elvis Presley :
    "You know someone said that the world's a stage
    And each must play a part.
    Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
    Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
    You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
    Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
    And why I'll never know..."
