Sonnets Quoted in "On the Air"

Sonnet XXIX

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon thyself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
     For thy sweet love rememb'red such wealth brings
     That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

Sonnet CIX

O! Never say that I was false of heart,
Thought absence seem'd my flame to qualify.
As easy might I from myself depart
As from my soul, which in thy breast doth lie:
Like him that travels, I return again;
So that myself bring water for my stain.
Never believe, though in my nature reign'd
All frailties that besiege all kinds of blood,
That it could so preposterously be stain'd,
To leave for nothing all thy sum of good;
     For nothing this wide universe I call,
     Save thou, my rose; in it thou art my all.

The Lyrics to the Theme Song (Sung in "There But for the Grace" and "From the Pen of Gertrude Reece")

Remember you,
Remember me,
And all those dreams come true
That never came to be.
The foggy lights of distant nights
Now shine so clearly
And I can hear your voice
As if you're mine and near me.
What might have been
Can live again;
I'll meet you then
If you remember when.

Lyrics to the Original Songs in "Christmas in the Airwaves"

"You Make It Christmas"

You make it Christmas each morning
And you make every night like New Year's Eve,
Then you light up my sky like the fourth of July,
Such an April fool I to believe,

And so on some warm summer evening
Should the heat get too much for us to take,
Simply say that I'm yours and you make it Christmas
Each day of love that we make

"Christmas is Waiting"

I've strung the Christmas lights around the tree
And hung a holly wreath where it should be—
A fire glows, and I suppose
There's nothing left for me to do:
Christmas is waiting for you.

And soon I'll hear your step upon the snow;
The tune the doorbell chimes will thrill me so
And I believe this Christmas Eve
You'll find your every wish comes true—
Christmas is waitng for you.

And I could tell that first noel we shared,
The angels sighed from high above
The Yuletide meaning like a greeting card
Unfolding to some words of love.

A Christmas candle on the window sill
Is burning low and low and lower still;
As morning breaks, the world awakes
And here's what I've awakened to—
Christmas is waiting and waiting and waiting,
Christmas is waiting for you.

"What is Death?" from "Christmas in the Airwaves"

These are the words of comfort given to Mr. Eldridge after his wife died and which he reads to Gloria Redmond.

"What is death? Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room, and I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other then, that we are still. Speak to me in the easy way that you always used, laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together, let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Life means all that it ever meant; there's absolute unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I'm out of sight? I am waiting for you, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well."

This is the version as read at actor Jeremy Brett's memorial service. The author is Canon Henry Scott Holland.

"Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other we are still.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we have always laughed
At the little jokes that we enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
I am waiting for you, just around the corner.
All is well."

Lyrics to the Original Songs in "Behind Every Great Woman"

"I Gotta Sing"

I gotta sing or I'll die;
It comes easy to me
Like a sob or a sigh.
I gotta sing at the moon,
Beat the rooster to croon,
Gotta sing or I'll die.

Why has this state of affairs come to be?
Have you come to love me?
Seems to be
For this feeling
I owe you and you—oh,
I found the song and the words:
Like the birds every spring,
I gotta sing,
Gotta sing,
I gotta sing.

"Not That I Know Of"

Not that I haven't,
And not that I couldn't,
And not that I wouldn't with you—
Love I've not known of as such,
Not that I've known all that much,
And though sometimes I doubt
there is love even out there,
I'm searching about anyhow—
Not that I mind you,
I know I can find you,
But not that I know of now.

Lyrics to the Original Songs in "The Follies of WENN"

"A Girl Like Me"

Who could take a boy like you
And make him a man?
A girl like me.
Why should I play coy
When what could be better than
A girl like me?
You have have met your match
If you've got money to burn,
'Cause I earn my keep
By keepin' all you can earn.
How and where you get it
Really needn't concern
A girl like me.

On a desert island
What would you hope to view?—
A girl like me.
What's the very best thing
That can happen to you?—
A girl like me.
And what's on display
Is only part of the tale,
Lucky guy, today
I got a holiday sale
And I know you'll pay
Because there's not any male
Who gets for free
A girl like me.

"And Then Some"

I've come of age
And I'm at the stage
Where love is a big ho-hum.
All I really need is a man
Who'll do what he can
And then some.

I need a mate
Who pulls his own weight—
For me that's a premium.
All I need is someone like you
Who knows what to do,
And then some.

Then, somebody who will treat me
Ever so completely right
Will tell me when I get what I've expected,
Not spend one neglected night.

I'm here to shout,
Romance is a drought
That cannot be overcome.
If you are a man among men,
Then give to me once again some
'Cause I need a man and then some...
And then some...

"Salome on Wry"

Salome decided
To put on a show:
One veil down,
And six to go.

Solemnly she bent,
Her whole intent to tease,
So veil six
Was aimed to please.

Veil number five
Barely did survive,
Veil number four
Fell upon the floor.

Veil number three
Left the company,
Veil number two—
It went toodle-oo.

Then, no doubt, our girl was out
Of veils but one,
But the fun
Had just begun...
