Put On A Happy Face
(From the musical 'Bye, Bye Birdie')

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so glooming
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face

Een universiteitsdocent die fundamenteel onderzoek verricht, wordt dood aangetroffen. Er zijn aanwijzingen dat de man zelfmoord pleegde en Steed wordt op onderzoek gestuurd. Tijdens zijn onderzoek raakt Steed er meer en meer van overtuigd dat het om moord gaat. Hij ontdekt dat de man een brief verstuurde naar Venus Smith, die tijdens de 'Rag week' (*) optreedt…
(*)Een liefdadigheidsactie van studenten voor de minderbedeelden in de maatschappij.

Varsity Drag
(From the musical 'Good News')

We've always thought
Knowledge is naught,
We should be taught to dance,
Right here at Tate
we're up to date,
We teach a great new dance,
don't think that I brag,
I speak of the drag.
Why should a sheikh
learn how to speak
Latin and Greek badly?
Give him a neat
Motto complete
Say it with feet gladly!
First lesson right now,
You'll love it and how you'll love it:
Here is the drag, see how it goes,
Down on the heels, up on the toes,
That's the way to do the Varsity Drag,
Hotter than hot, newer than new,
Meaner than mean, bluer than blue,
Gets as much applause as waving the flag!
You can pass many a class,
Whether you're dumb or wise,
If you'll all answer the call
when your professor cries:
"Everybody down on the heels, up on the toes,
Stay after school and learn how it goes,
Everybody do the varsity drag!

Julie Stevens & The Dave Lee Trio

Yellow Bird
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.
Did your lady friend leave the nest again? That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.
You're more lucky than me.
I also had a pretty girl, she's not with me today.
They're all the same those pretty girls.
Take tenderness, then they fly away.
Yellow Bird, yellow bird.
Did your lady friend leave the nest again? That is very sad, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.
You're more lucky than me.
Wish that I were a yellow bird, I'd fly away with you.
But I am not a yellow bird, So here I sit.
Nothing I can do.
Yellow bird, yellow bird.

Julie Stevens
