When things go wrong, don't go with them.
When things go bad, don't go with them.
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away.
I have no use for bodyguards, but I have very specific use for two highly trained certified public accountants.
I did the Ed Sullivan show four times. I did the Steve Allen show. I did the Jackie Gleason show.
I've tried to lead a straight, clean life, not set any kind of a bad example.
I like to sing ballads the way Eddie Fisher does and the way Perry Como does. But the way I'm singing now is what makes the money.
I'm trying to keep a level head. You have to be careful out in the world. It's so easy to get turned.
I sure lost my musical direction in Hollywood. My songs were the same conveyer belt mass production, just like most of my movies were.
Just because I managed to do a little something, I don't want anyone back home to think I got the big head.
Until we meet again, may God bless you as he has blessed me.
The next thing I knew, I was out of the service and making movies again. My first picture was called, GI Blues. I thought I was still in the army.
I hope I didn't bore you too much with my life story.
I'll never feel comfortable taking a strong drink, and I'll never feel easy smoking a cigarette. I just don't think those things are right for me.
The closest I ever came to getting married was just before I started singing. In fact, my first record saved my neck.
The colored folks been singing it and playing it just like I'm doin' now, man, for more years than I know. I got it from them.
When I was a boy, I always saw myself as a hero in comic books and in movies. I grew up believing this dream.
A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts.
People ask me where I got my singing style. I didn't copy my style from anybody.
Since the beginning, it was just the same. The only difference, the crowds are bigger now.
