ContentsOklahoma!. Oh what a beautiful mornin' ; People will say we're in love ; The surrey with the fringe on top ; Oklahoma
Carousel. If I loved you ; You'll never walk alone ; When the children are asleep ; June is bustin' out all over
State fair. It's a grand night for singing ; It might as well be spring
Allegro. The gentleman is a dope
South Pacific. Some enchanted evening ; Bali Ha'i ; A wonderful guy ; Younger than springtime
The King and I. Hello, young lovers ; Something wonderful ; Getting to know you ; Shall we dance?
Me and Juliet. No other love
Pipe dream. All at once you love her
Cinderella. In my own little corner ; Do I love you because you're beautiful? ; There's music in you
Flower drum song. A hundred million miracles ; Love, look away ; You are beautiful
The sound of music. My favorite things ; The sound of music ; Climb ev'ry mountain ; Edelweiss.
