    Lyric: Assoc. Prof. Sodsai Pantoomkomol

    The candlelight is shining low, My only love, I'm missing you so. I know I've lost, But still I dream of you.

    I'll hope and dream, Till all my dreams come true. Just by the candlelight, You used to hold me tight.

    This candlelight reminds me so of you; By candlelight you kissed me. Still the candle's burning for two, But darling, where can you be?

    Come back, my love, If you're feeling this blue, By candlelight you'll meet me. But darling where can you be?

    This candlelight reminds me so of you; By candlelight you kissed me. Still the candle's burning for two, But darling, where can you be?

  • 3. Love at Sundown - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: Prof. Thanpuying Nopakhun Thongyai Na Ayudhya

    'This sundown, The golden sunlight tints the blue sea, Paints the hill and gilds the palm tree. Happy be, my love, at sundown.

    'This sundown. The multi-coloured dancing sunbeam, Brightly shines on in my heart's dream, Of the one I love, at sundown.

    The birds come to their nest- At peace, they bill and coo. The wide world sinks to rest, And so do I and so do you.

    'This sundown. In splendour sinks the sun, comes twilight, Day is done, now greets the cool night. Happy be, my love, at sundown.

  • 4. Falling Rain - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: Prof. Thanpuying Nopakhun Thongyai Na Ayudhya

    Rain winds sweep across the plain. Thunder rumbles on high. Lightening flashes; Bows the grain. Birds in fright nestward fly. But the rain pours down in blessing; Filled with cheer our hearts expand. As the woods with notes of pleasure ring, Sunlight streams o'er the land.

    Bright the rainbow comes in view. All the world's cool and clean. Angels's tears the flowers renew. Nature glistens in green. Rain beads sparkle in your hair, love. Rainbows glitter when you smile. Thus we soon forget the clouds above, Beauty so does beguile.

  • 5. Near Dawn - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: Prof. Thanpuying Nopakhun Thongyai Na Ayudhya

    How calm the world, all nature slumbers still. Grey is the sky, No breezes blow. O'er roof and hill, The moon now low, Sends gentle light, To guard below.

    Cocks waking call 'cross the fields: Grey shadows flee; Stars disappear. But, here I lie sleepless, dear. Bats flutter home. The dawn is near.

    Gold streaks the east. Its glow, the roofs reflect, Dark leaves turn green, And flow'rs with light, are deck'd. Now birds and babes wake to play. The world expectant waits, To greet a bright, new day.

    Dew fresh and cool. The town awakes from sleep, Its throb I hear:car, speeding, hum. Of love and hope the birds sing, dear, Come, rise don't mope, The dawn is near.

  • 6. H.M. Blues - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    We 've got the Hungry Men's Blues. You'll be hungry too, if you're in this band. Don't you think that our music is grand? We've got the Hungry Men's Blues. You've eaten now all of you. We'd like to eat with you too, That's why we've got the H.M. Blues.

  • 7. Never Mind the Hungry Men's Blues - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    We used to be so hungry, We used to be so blue; But now we know that you all, Enjoy the song we play along, The whole night through.

    We used to be unhappy, We used to be so blue; But then you gave us supper, We love to play all night and day, For all of you.

    Les croissants au jambon, Et sandwiches sont tres bon; The punch's fine, the good wine. Have all been wonderful, To band of mine.

    We used to be so hungry, We used to be so blue; But then you gave us supper, You 've been so kind, so, Never Mind the H.M. Blues.

  • 8. Blue Day - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    Blue Day, There 's no sunshine. Why must you go away, Leaving me here alone?
    My own. How I miss you, With loving heart so true! That's why I feel so blue.

    Dear one, What's the good of, Days without the sun, Or peaceful nights, Without the moon?

    But soon, No more blue day. Whenever I meet you, Then all my dreams come true.

    Blue day, Gloomy blue day, When you are far away, Why must we be apart?

    Sweetheart, Dear, I love you, With all my heart, I do That's why I feel so blue.

    My love, Skies are so grey, Cloudy up above, Dear won't you please, Come back to me?

    There'll be, No more blueday. Again the sun will shine. That day I'll make you mine.

  • 9. Dewa Pa Ku Fun - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    Each day, I dream of love, I dream of you. You're like an angel dear, For heaven sends you here. With joy, I feel your kiss, Your lovelight gleams. But then, I find each bliss: Only in dreams.

    Each night, I yearn for love. I long for you, You bring me ecstasy, Now you're forsaking me. So heaven, please-, Please don't let me just dream, Please make my dream come true.

    In Wonderland of love with you, The rainbow gleams and roses bloom. You are the lovely bride, And I, the happy groom. But the wonderland of love, Is just a dream of love for you.

    Each day, I dream of love, I dream of you. Your eyes are heaven's bless; Your smile brings happiness. I find a cozy room, A home for two, With roses all in bloom, and lovely you.

    In my kingdom of dreams, You are my queen. The joy is waking me; I'm lost in reverie. So heaven, please- Please don't let me just dream. Please make my dreame come true.

  • 10. Sweet Words - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    The song you sing me, Has sweetest words and melody. It's love-laden flare, That keeps my heart all aflame. I wonder if you really care, Or is it just a game, Of teasing poor me, Ever to be your slave of love?

    Listen to sweetwords, In your song of love? Like the tunes of birds, Singing up above. How am I to know, Those sweet words are true? Please say so. Don't say no. Say you mean it too.

    Though your melody haunted me, But your heart I never knew, You can sing along, Sweet love song, But the words may not be true.

    If the song you sing Has sweet words sincere, Please, darling Keep singing. Forever, dear.

    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    Oh, darling mine, I'm so in love with you. Since first we met long, long ago. I wonder if you love me too? My lonely, loving heart's bleeding so,

    My whole life now depends on you, my love. You're sent from heaven up above. Just to fill empty heart, With a thrill from the start. At first sight, lovelight burns in my heart.

    Fate brings me life anew, When I meet you, Love at first sight, With flaming light, Burns in my heart. In Reaching for you, love, You're high above, Like stars afar, It seems we are apart.

    So beats my heart with such a love so true, My heart, my soul belong to you. You alone, mean to me, You're my own destiny. At first sight, lovelight keeps burning me.

    If you love me as much as I love you, The whole world, dear, will be so fair, The skies will be so clear, so blue, And there'll be warm sunshine everywhere,

    My searching heart will never roam again, With you alone I shall remain, Ever care, from the start, Ever share, lover's part. At first sight, lovelight burns in my heart.

    Fate brings me life anew, When I meet you, Love at first sight, With flaming light, Burns in my heart. In reaching for you, love, You're high above, Like stars afar, It seems we are apart.

    So beats my heart with such a love so true, My heart, my soul belong to you. You alone, mean to me, You're my own destiny. At first sight, lovelight keeps burning me.

  • 12. Love over Again - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    I'm in love with you over again, My darling, when you sing, Love's refrain for me. How can I ever forget you, dear? I will be so happy, When you're near again. A slave of your love, Forever I will remain. Heaven up above, Won't let me love in vain.

    I'm in love with you over again, Dear, will you love me too, As much as I do?

    I'm in love with you with all my heart, In my scheme, in my dream, Lover's part is you. Everday it seems so cold and gray. I'm so blue without you, While I stay in love.

    When you're far away, You're all that I'm thinking of. There will come a day, When you'll return, my love. With your love, how happy I will be, Forever and ever. So happy in love.

  • 13. Twilight - H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • Music: H.M.K. Bhumibol Adulyadej
    Lyric: H.H. Prince Chakrabandh Pensiri

    When the sun is beaming, Bright and lovely day, The world is singing, For all the clouds just roll away.

    When the moon is beaming, Soft and mellow night, The world is singing, For lovers love the moonlight.

    But there are moments at the twilight, When the day is blending with the night, Life is so serene, A dusky screen, Covers the world.

    Then it seems so lifeless, But only awhile, A dawn to happiness, Twilight is planned so to beguile.

    When the golden sun beam, Streams over the world, The land is like a dream; The pretty flowers and leaves unfurled.

    When the silvery moonbeam, Shines on up above, With twinkling star agleam, A wonderland of true love.

    While the sunbeam kisses the moonlight, When the day is blending with the night, Life is so serene, A dusky screen, Covers the world.

    Twilight is but stillness, Blessing in disguise, A dawn to happiness, A calm prelude to paradise.
