A foggy day

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

After you’ve gone

Ain’t misbehavin

Almost like being in love

As time goes by

At last

Autumn leaves

Besame mucho

Cheek to cheek

Close to you

Come fly with me

Have you met miss jones

I get a kick out of you

I got rhythm

I only have eyes for you

I’ve got the world on a string

I’ve got you under my skin

I’ve never been in love before

In the wee small hours of the morning

It had to be you

It’s only a paper moon

Let there be love

Let’s do it (let’s fall in love)

Let’s face the music and dance

Let’s fall in love

Let’s stay together
