Misty over you

Another song that was quite popular when he would be in a good mood and break out into song or pick up a trumpet.

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree,
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud;
I can't understand, I get misty just holding your hand.

Walk my way and a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello,
That music I hear, I get misty, the moment you're near.

You can say that you're leading me on,
But it's just what I want you to do.
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost?
That's why I'm following you.

On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone,
Never knowing my right foot from my left,
My hat from my glove?
I'm too misty and too much in love.
I'm too misty and too much in love.

Breaking out into song for no particular reason

He would break out into song quite often and this was his favorite,

Darktown Strutters Ball
Shelton Brooks

I'll be down to get you in a taxi, Honey.
Better be ready 'bout half past eight.
Now, Honey, don't be late.
I wanna be there when
the band starts playing

Remember when we get there, Honey
Two steps, I'm gonna have a ball
I'm gonna dance off both my shoes
When they play those Jelly Roll Blues
Tomorrow night at the
Dark Town Strutters Ball.

I'll be down to get you in a taxi, Honey.
Better be ready 'bout half past eight.
Now, Honey, don't be late.
I wanna be there when
the band starts playing

Remember when we get there, Honey
Two step, we're gonna have a ball
I'm gonna dance off both my shoes
When they play those Jelly Roll Blues
Tomorrow night at the
Dark Town Strutters Ball.

Another song was a bit strange,

Leprosy, I think I have Leprosy,
I lost my eye ball, it fell into my high ball.

That is all I can remember but I think that is all he sang.

Wooden Hall
