Cant get started
Come Fly With Me
Days of wine and roses
Devil May Care
Don’t get around much anymore
Don’t be blue

Fly me to the moon
Foggy day
Green dolphin street
Georgia
Gentle rain
I get a kick out of you
I got it bad
It could happen to you
It had to be you
I only have eyes for you
Like young
Long ago and far away
Lets get lost
Moondance
My one and only love
Nature boy

No greater love

Out of nowhere
On a clear day
Old for the new
Over The Rainbow
Something
Sunshine of my life
Summertime
Sway
Straighten up and fly right
Sunny
Tenderly
There will never be another you
There is no greater love
The way you look tonight
Under my skin
Watch what happens
When I fall in love
You don’t know me
You don’t know what love is

And more…
