Lyrics:

There’s No Such Thing As Love
There’s no such thing at all
There’s No Such Thing As Love
It’s just a word, that kids write on a wall

There’s no such thing as love’s old sweet song
It’s just the same old  rhyme the  poets chime
And poets could be wrong

There’s no one just for me
To me they’re all the same
They’re just an hour’s fun and then I run
To me it’s just a game

There’s no such thing
As blue skies above

‘Caus since you said goodbye
There’s no such thing
There’s no such thing as love

They’re just an hour’s fun and then I run
To me it’s just a game
There’s no such thing
As blue skies above

‘Caus since you said goodbye
You left me high and dry

‘Caus since you said goodbye
There’s no such thing
There’s no such thing as love

Anthony Newley & Ian Fraser (who wrote this song together) at the “Mike Douglas Show”, September 24th 1981 – Anthony Newley’s 50th birthday. Newley recorded this marvelous song for several times, with different orchestrations.

“The Old Fashioned Way” (From the Never Never Never album) is the English version of Charles Aznavour‘s Les plaisirs démodés song. The song was released in 1973 by Barclay Records as a single (What makes a Man on the B-side) and became a hit in the Netherlands (#5), Belgium and in the UK (it was on British charts for 15 weeks).

Lyrics:

Dance in the old-fashioned way.
Won’t you stay in my arms?
Just melt against my skin and let me feel your heart.
Don’t let the music win by dancing far apart.
Come close where you belong, let’s hear our secret song.

Dance in the old-fashioned way.
Won’t you stay in my arms and
we’ll discover heights we never knew before,
if we just close our eyes and dance around the floor.
That gay, old-fashioned way that makes me love you more.

Come closer, forget about the others.
It’s nice to be like this, cheek to cheek,
in the old-fashioned way.
It’s funny, but, I have the feeling
that we are dancing as our parents used to do.
Well, maybe they weren’t wrong: the world changes, love stays.

Dance in the old-fashioned way.
Won’t you stay in my arms
and we’ll discover heights we never knew before,
if we just close our eyes and dance around the floor.
That gay, old-fashioned way that makes me love you more.

Below a short clip from a program from French TV from 2003 about Charles Aznavour which features Dame Shirley singing The Old Fashioned Way on one of her 1976 BBC shows.
