zelmira
riedi al soglio: irata stella
se ne chiuse a te il sentiero;
pura fede, amor sincero
ti richiama al tuo splendor.
no, piu affanni in me non sento,
ah, felice appien lo sono,
se serbai la vita, il trono
all'amato genitor.

deh, circondatemi, miei can oggetti!
vol, che nell'anima soavl affetti,
care dellzie destate ognor.
ah, si, compensino si dolci istanti
le pene, i palpitl ch'ebbi finor.
e dopo il nembo di pace in grembro
respiri in seno sereno il cor.

coro
ah, dopo il turbine di ria procella,
la gioia, ii giubilo c'inondi il cor!
zelmira
return to your throne: an adverse star
barred your way to it;
pure faith and candid love
now recall you to your glory.
i no longer feel distress within me,
i feel perfect happiness,
for i have saved both the life and the throne
of my beloved father.

gather round, my beloved ones!
you, who ever arouse in my heart
dear affection and sweet delight.
may such beautiful moments make up
for the pains i have suffered until now.
after the storm my breast is tranquil
and my heart shall breathe in peace.

coro
ah, after the raging of the cruel storm,
let joy and celebration fill our hearts!

3 aretha franklin . amazing grace . precious lord, take my hand/you've got a friend

soloist:
when you're down
and troubled
you need

and meditate on him
and soon he will be there
god can brighten up
he can brighten up
your darkest hour

chorus
precious lord
take my hand

through the storms

precious lord
he's my strength

(simultaneously w/ soloist repeating previous two stanzas)
through the storms (?)
i can't take ?
where you go
wherever you are
he will be there
to see you again

winter, spring, summer, or fall
all you have to do is call

and he'll be there
you've got a friend

you've got a friend in jesus (repeat ad lib)

6 barbra streisand, styne/merrill . funny girl (OBC) . don't rain on my parade
source of lyrics

don't tell me not to live
just sit and putter,
life's candy and the sun's
a ball of butter,
don't bring around a cloud
to rain on my parade.
don't tell me not to fly,
i've simply got to
if someone takes a spill
it's me and not you.
who told you allowed to rain on my parade?

i'll march my band out,
i'll beat my drum,
and if i'm fanned out,
your turn at bat, sir.
at least i didn't fake it.
hat, sir, i guess i didn't make it!

but whether i'm the rose
of sheer perfection,
or freckle on the nose
of life's complexion,
the cinder or the shiny apple of its eye.

i gotta fly once,
i gotta try once,
only can die once, right, sir?
ooh, love is juicy,
juicy, and you see
i gotta have my bite, sir!

get ready for me, love,
'cause i'm a "comer,"
i simply gotta march,
my heart's a drummer.
don't bring around a cloud
to rain on my parade!

i'm gonna live and live now,
get what i want--i know how,
one roll for the whole shebang,
one throw, that bell will go clang,
eye on the target--and wham--
one shot, one gun shot, and bam--
hey, mister arnstein, here i am!

i'll march my band out,
i'll beat my drum,
and if i'm fanned out,
your turn at bat, sir,
at least i didn't fake it.
hat, sir, i guess i didn't make it.

get ready for me, love,
'cause i'm a "comer,"
i simply gotta march,
my heart's a drummer.
no one's gonna rain on my parade!

7 mahalia jackson . the great gospel women, vol. 2 . what could i do?

what could i do
if it wasn't for your way

what could i say
what could i see
what could i feel
how could i pray
what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

he's my bread
he's my water
he's my life, my health redeemed
and jesus comforts me
whatever he hears me prayin

he's my rock
my mighty tower
he's my strength
and my all and all

what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

he's my mother
he's my father
he's my sister my brother too
and jesus strengthens me
when i don't know just what to do

when lights go out
my pride (?) gets thin
and friends move out
jesus steps right in
what could i do
if it wasn't for your way

when trouble rises
what could i do
if it wasn't for your way

8 madonna . the immaculate collection . into the groove

(spoken:)
and you can dance
for inspiration
come on
i'm waiting

chorus:

your love to me, yeah

(bridge)
music can be such a revelation
dancing around you feel the sweet sensation
we might be lovers if the rhythm's right
i hope this feeling never ends tonight

only when i'm dancing can i feel this free
at night i lock the doors, where no one else can see
i'm tired of dancing here all by myself
tonight i wanna dance with someone else

(chorus)

(intermediate)
gonna get to know you in a special way
this doesn't happen to me every day
don't try to hide it love wears no disguise
i see the fire burning in your eyes

9 joan sutherland, handel/haym . la stupenda, alcina (1735, 1962) . tornami a vagheggiar
source of lyrics

tornami a vagheggiar,
te solo vuol' amar
quest' anima fedel,
caro, mio bene, caro!

giŗ ti donai il mio cor :
fido sarŗ il mio amor;
mai ti sarÚ crudel,
cara mia spene.
return to me to languish,
only you it wants to love
this faithful heart,
my dear, my good one, my dear!

already i gave you my heart :
i trust you will be my love;
but you will be too cruel,
my dear hope.

10 judy garland, arlen/gershwin . a star is born (soundtrack) . the man that got away
source of lyrics

the night is bitter,
the stars have lost their glitter,
the winds grow colder,
and suddenly you're older
and all because of
the man that got away.

no more his eager call,
the writing's on the wall,
the dreams you dreamed have all
gone astray.
the man that won you
has run off and undone you.
that great beginning
has seen it's final inning,
don't know what happened
it's all a crazy game.

no more that all-time thrill
for you've been through the mill,
and never a new love will
be the same.

good riddance, good-bye.
every trick of his you're on to -
but fools will be fools and where's he gone to?

the road gets rougher,
it's lonelier and tougher.
with hope you burn up,
tomorrow he may turn up.
there's just no letup
the livelong night and day.

ever since this world began
there is nothing sadder than
a one-man woman
looking for the man that got away . . .

(interlude)

the road gets rougher,
it's lonelier and tougher.
with hope you burn up,
tomorrow he may turn up.
there's just no letup
the livelong night and day.

ever since this world began
there is nothing sadder than
a one-man woman
looking for the man
the man that got away . . .

the man that got away . . .

11 leontyne price, giordano/illica . leontyne price rediscovered, andrea chenier (1896, 2/28/1965) . la mamma morta
source of lyrics

la mamma morta m'hanno
alla porta della stanza mia;
moriva e mi salvava!
poi a notte alta
io con bersi errava,
quando ad un tratto
un livido bagliore guizza
e rischiara innanzi a' passi miei
la cupa via!
guardo!
bruciava il loco di mia culla!
cosž fui sola!
e intorno il nulla!
fame e miseria!
il bisogno, il periglio!
caddi malata,
e bersi, buona e pura,
di sua bellezza ha fatto un mercato,
un contratto per me!
porto sventura a chi bene mi vuole!
fu in quel dolore
che a me venne l'amor!
voce piena d'armonia e dice:
"vivi ancora! io son la vita!
ne' miei occhi Ť il tuo cielo!
tu non sei sola!
le lacrime tue io le raccolgo!
io sto sul tuo cammino e ti sorreggo!
sorridi e spera! io son l'amore!
tutto intorno Ť sangue e fango?
io son divino! io son l'oblio!
io sono il dio che sovra il mondo
scendo da l'empireo, fa della terra
un ciel! ah!
io son l'amore, io son l'amor, l'amor"
they killed my mother
in the doorway of my room;
she died saving me!
later, at dead of night,
i wandered about with bersi,
when suddenly
a livid glow flickers
and lights ahead of me
the dark street!
i looked at it!
my childhood home was ablaze!
i was alone,
and surrounded by nothingness!
hunger and poverty,
deprivation and danger.
i became ill,
and bersi, so good and pure
traded her beauty
for my sake!
i bring misfortune to all who love me.
it was then, in my misery,
that love came to me!
and murmured in a sweet, melodious voice:
"you must live! i am life itself!"
heaven is in my eyes!
you are not alone!
let your tears fall on my breast!
i will walk with you and be your support!
smile and hope! i am love!
is all around you blood and mire?
i am divine! i can make you forget!
i am the god who descends to earth
from the empyrean and makes this world
a paradise! ah!
i am love, love, love"

12 bessie griffin . the great gospel women, vol. 2 . since i met jesus

since i met jesus
lord, there's a burnin
oh, such a burnin
deep down within

don't you know that it holds me
with an unseen power
and it keeps me
free from all sin

it changes me
from day to day
as i walk alone
this narrow way

since i met jesus
since he blessed this old soul of mine
it makes me want to run
shout hallelujah
right to the end

13 donna murphy, bernstein . leonard bernstein's new york . ain't got no tears
source of lyrics

ain't got no tears left,
i've been cryin' so long;
can't weep for joy,
can't weep for sorrow.

ain't got no tears left,
though the pain, it's so strong;
can't keep on cryin' all the time.
ain't got no tears left.

the day you walked out without any trace
i tried to find you, but you won the race,
and now i sit here, don't go any place,
just keep on starin' into space
rememberin' your face.

ain't got no hope
i'm gonna find you some day,
won't be tonight,
won't be tomorrow.
though i still need you
in the same burnin' way,
can't keep on cryin' all the time.
ain't got no tears left.
ain't got no tears left.

wish i could cry, so that
i can get relief from this pain,
the way the showers bring flowers back
to life in the rain.
can't keep on cryin' all the time;
ain't got no tears left;
no tears...

14 heather headley . www.heatherheadley.com . i wish i wasn't (live)

iím home alone again
and youíre out hanginí with your friends
so you say
somehow i know itís not quite that way

itís getting pretty late
and you havenít checked on me all day
when i called you didnít answer
now iím feeliní like youíre ignoriní me

i wish that you were home
holdiní me tight in your arms
and i wish i could go back
to the day before we met
and skip my regret

i wish i wasnít in love with you
so you couldnít hurt me
it just ainít fair the way you treat me
no, you donít deserve me

wasted my time thinkiní Ďbout you
and you ainít never goní change
i wish i wasnít in love with you
so i wouldnít feel this way

said you care about me, but from what i see
i ainít feeliní that, so i disagree
gave you all my love and understanding
and you treated me like your enemy

so leave me alone, donít bother to follow me
now just go back where you came from
this house is no longer your home
you are not welcome no, no, no more, no more

i wish i wasnít in love with you
so you couldnít hurt me
it just ainít fair the way you treat me
no, you donít deserve me

wasted my time thinkiní 'bout you
and you ainít never goní change
i wish i wasnít in love with you
so i wouldnít feel this way

15 bjork . play dead (EP, japan) . play dead (tim simenon 7" mix)
source of lyrics

darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
hopeful enbraces
don't you understand?
i have to go through this
i belong to here where
no - one cares and no - one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and hurting stops

it's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

i play dead
it stops the hurting

a seville, belles senoras,
on brave les frimas.
a seville, belles sehoras,
la fleur nait sous vos pas.
et dans i'air, un doux echo murmure,
charmant, les nuits, les jours;
on dirait qu'avec la brise pure,
ah! bruissent des ailes d'amours !
o belles senoras,
ah! connaissez-vous seville?
les fleurs vont sur vos pas,
de parfums embaumer la mantille;
d'azur, d'or est le jour,
et le soir, lorsque l'etoile brille,
ah! i'on entend chanter l'amour !

ah! pourquoi rever,
pourquoi, loin de nos fetes, soupirer?
ah! loin de nos fetes? ah !

ole! mes belles senoras,
l'amour vous dit aimez, enfants,
votre ame espere, a vous, les chants ...
aimez, enfants ainsi, l'amour, dans l'ombre errant,
murmure comme un flot mourant,
un flot mourant.
in seville, lovely senoras,
they brave the cold weather.
in seville, lovely senoras,
flowers grow at our feet.
and day and night a sweet echo murmurs,
enchanting, in the air.
you would think that in the clear breeze
the wings of love are rustling!
o lovely senoras,
do you know seville?
flowers cover your path
to bathe our mantillas in scent,
the daylight is gold and blue,
and at night, when the stars are shining,
you hear the song of love.

ah, why dream,
why sigh, far from our celebrations?
ah, far from our celebrations?

ole! my lovely senoras,
love tells you to love, children,
your hearts long for your own songs...
love like this, children, in the flitting shadows,
love murmurs like a dying wave,
a dying wave.

19 marion williams . the essential gospel sampler . what could i do?

what could i do
without the comfort of his way

what could i see
what could i say
how could i feel
how could i pray
what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

he's my mother
he's my father
he's my sister my brother too
he helps me when i don't know what to do

he keeps me young
and he keep me strong
makes me right when i do wrong
what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

he's my bread
he's my water
he's my life my everything
he helps me whenever
he hears me prayin

lights go out
crowd gets thin
sins move out
god steps right in
what could i do
if it wasn't for the lord

what could i do
without the comfort of his way

20 audra mcdonald, lachiusa . marie christine (OBC) . way back to paradise

(spoken)
marie christine: you are a woman now, lisette ...
lisette: oui, mamzelle.
mc: it is not always a pleasurable thing to be a woman ...
l: no mamzelle?

(sung)
mc: we are ruled by our brothers.
we are ruled by our husbands.
we jump at the voices of our masters
and do as they say.
we are bartered and traded,
along with cattle and cotton.
we have to be beautiful
and it helps to have a dowry of some kind:
we have to show humility
and have the presence of mind
to never complain.
and they say itís our fault
we were thrown out of eden
to be turned into salt ...
but there is a way back to paradise,
there is a way:
study all men.
learn what they lack.
sweeten and stroke
before you attack:
put up a front
and then slip through the back
be on your way back
| to paradise
| l: oui mamzellí.
| oui, mamzellí...

long ago back in eden (eden)
when we didnít
need husbands (husbands)
we danced to the voices
in the garden
and had our own way. (...ou ye ye, mamzellí).
we were taught by
our mothers
along the river
of knowledge
our garden
was beautiful (beautiful)
until the angels came to call
and on the wings of jealousy
they brought down the fall ...
and gave the garden to men:
who put it out of our touch.
we were thrown out of eden
for knowing too much.

but there is a way back to paradise.
there is a way:
bide your time. (oui, mamzellí)
be clever and wise (oui, mamzellí)
when you look at a man, (oui, mamzellí)
look him dead in the eyes, (oui, mamzellí)

mc: do not be seduced.
tell him elegant lies.

both:
be on your way ...
be on your way back to paradise ...

love is a game, yeah, baby
the rules of love are always fickle

the goal of love, yeah, baby
i wanna see you

i fell in love, we kiss
i believe you just today

but baby, love is a game
it doesn't always go your way

looking at the tokyo tower
we swore our love

but the night is over
i woke up and the rules have changed

but but
maybe now
it's a bit early
to give up
baby, you especially
don't wanna show
your weakness
when it comes to love

maybe god
smiles at me
and i wanna see you
tonight again

mode of love, yeah, baby
romantic fashions are fickle

rule of love, yeah, baby
i wanna see you

music i heard sometime ago
music of love i feel a little melancholy

i will never fall in love again
i feel like dying biting my tongue

after midnight
i call you

i just heard the phone ringing
i don't know the rules

but, but
i don't wanna walk
alone
crying
baby, it's just luck
when love goes well
right? isn't it?

maybe god will
smile at me
and i wanna see you
again tomorrow

so,
now
it's a bit early
to give up
baby,
it's just luck
when love goes well
right? isn't it?

maybe fate
will look at me
maybe god
will smile at me
maybe you
will look at me
and i wanna see you
again tonight

22 jennifer holliday, krieger/eyen . dreamgirls (OBC) . and i am telling you i'm not going
source of lyrics

and i am telling you
i'm not going.
you're the best man i'll ever know.
there's no way i can ever go.
no, no, no, no way,
no, no, no, no way i'm living without you.
i'm not living without you.
i don't want to be free.
i'm staying, i'm staying,
and you, and you, you're gonna love me.
ooh, you're gonna love me.

and i am telling you
i'm not going,
even though the rough times are showing.
there's just no way, there's no way!
we're part of the same place,
we're part of the same time.
we both share the same blood.
we both have the same mind.

and time and time we have so much to share.
no! no, no, no, no, no!
i'm not waking up tomorrow morning
and finding that there's nobody there.
darling, there's no way,
no, no, no, no way i'm living without you.
i'm not living without you.
you see, there's just no way,
there's no way!

tear down the mountains,
yell, scream and shout.
you can say what you want,
i'm not walking out.
stop all the rivers,
push, strike and kill.
i'm not gonna leave you,
there's no way i will!

and i am telling you
i'm not going.
you're the best man i'll ever know.
there's no way i can ever, ever go.
no, no, no, no way,
no, no, no, no way i'm living without you.
i'm not living without you,
i'm not living without you.
i don't want to be free.
i'm staying, i'm staying,
and you, and you, and you, you're gonna love me.
ooh, you're gonna love me.
you're gonna love me!
