Snippets of songs (with the lyrics that tend to trip people up):
Consider yourself at home
Consider yourself one of the family
We've taken to you so strong.
It's clear we're going to get along.
Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare
Who cares what ever we've got we share
If it should chance to be we should see some harder days
Empty larder days. Why grouse?
Always a chance we1ll meet somebody to foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house.
[[ or second time round: ]]
Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah and uppity
There's a cup of tea for all
Only it's wise to be handy with a rolling pin
When the landlord comes to call
Consider yourself our mate
We don't want to have no fuss.
For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself one of us!
Who will buy This wonderful morning?
Such a sky You never did see!
Who will tie It up with a ribbon
And put it in a box for me?
Who will buy This wonderful feeling?
I'm so high I swear I could fly.
Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it
So what am I to do To keep the sky so blue?
I'd do anything
For you, dear, anything
For you mean ev'rything to me.
I know that I'd go anywhere Humm
For your smile, anywhere
For your smile ev'rywhere I'd see.
Let the clouds of grey come along Quietly
Never mind if they come along
Surely they won't stay very long
If you'll only say
You're mine alone.
I'd risk ev'rything Out loud!
For this kiss ev'rything
Yes I'd do anything, anything for you!
