Nightingale sang In berkeley square


 

nightingale

That certain night, the night we met,

There was magic abroad in the air.

There were angels dining at the Ritz,

And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

I may be right, I may be wrong,

But i’m perfectly willing to swear

That when you turned and smiled at me,

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

The moon that lingered over London town

Poor puzzled moon, he wore a frown.

How could he know that we two were so in love?

The whole darn world seemed upside down.

The streets of town were paved with stars,

It was such a romantic affair.

And as we kissed and said goodnight,

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

When dawn came stealing up, all gold and blue

To interrupt our rendez-vous,

I still remember how you smiled and said,

was that a dream? or was it true?

Our homeward step was just as light

As the dancing of Fred Astaire,

And like an echo far away

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.
