     LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING

 Love is a many splendored thing
 It's the April rose
 That only grows in the early spring
 Love is nature's way of giving
 A reason to be living
 The golden crown that makes a man a king

        Once on a high and windy hill
          In the morning mist
          Two lovers kissed
          And the world stood still
          Then your fingers touched
          My silent heart and taught it how to sing
          Yes, true love's
          A many splendored thing
         
                       Rpeat  




    It's Been A Long Long Time

Kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time
Haven't felt like this, my dear


         Since I can't remember when
        It's been a long, long time

        You'll never know how many dreams
        I've dreamed about you

               Or just how empty they all seemed without you
               So kiss me once, then kiss me twice
               Then kiss me once again
               It's been a long, long time


Ah, kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long time
Haven't felt like this my dear


          Since I can't remember when
         It's been a long, long time
         You'll never know how many dreams
         I dreamed about you

               Or just how empty they all seemed without you
               So kiss me once then kiss me twice
               Then kiss me once again
               It's been a long, long time

    My Heart Cries For You

My heart cries for you
  Sighs for you, dies for you
  And my arms long for you
  Please come back to me

       If you're in Arizona, I'll follow you
       If you're in Minnesota, I'll be there too
       You'll have a million chances to start anew
       Because my love is endless for you

Repeat

       An unimportant quarrel was what we had
       We have to learn to live with the good and bad
       Together we were happy, apart we're sad
       This loneliness is driving me mad

Repeat

       Please come back
       Come back, come back to me





    Five Minutes More 

Dear, this evening seemed to go so awfully fast
We had so much fun and now you're home at last
I look forward to a kiss or two at the garden gate
But she gave me just one peck and insisted it was late

   *  Give me five minutes more, only five minutes more
      Let me stay, let me stay in your arms
      Here am I, begging for only five minutes more
      Only five minutes more of your charms

 All week long I dreamed about our Saturday date
 Don't you know that Sunday morning you can sleep late?
 Give me five minutes more, only five minutes more
 Let me stay, let me stay in your arms
              

                             * Repeat

     


     SMILE (浅田真央さんのイクシビションの曲)

   Smile, though your heart is aching.  Smile even though it's breaking.
   When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by.
   If you smile through your fears and sorrow.
   Smile, and maybe tomorrow, you'll see the sun come shining through for you.

   Light up your face with gladness. Hide every trace of sadness.
   Although a tear may be ever so near.
   That's the time you must keep on trying.
   Smile, what's the use of crying.
   You'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.




 Only You  - The Platters -

Only you
can make this world seem right
Only you
can make the darkness bright
Only you
and you alone
Can thrill me like you do
And fill my heart
with love for only you

       Only you
       can make this change in me
       For it’s true,
       you are my destiny
       When you hold my hand
       I understand
       the magic that you do
       You’re my dream come true
       My one and only you

            (Repeat)





     MOON RIVER
     (映画「ティファニーで朝食を」でオードリーが窓辺でギター弾き語りしているのがこの曲です)   

  Moon river, wider than a mile
  I'm crossing you in style some day
  Old dream maker, you heart breaker
  Wherever you're going
  I'm going your way

     Two drifters, off to see the world
     There's such a lot of world to see
     We're after the same rainbow's end
     Waiting round the bend
     My huckleberry friend
     Moon river and me

         (Refrain)




      MAMA

Mama thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
For the times
I forgot

   Mama remember all my life
   You showed me love, You sacrificed
   Think of those young and early days
   How I've changed
   along the way

        And I know you believed
        And I know you had dreams
        And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
        That I am where I am because of your truth
        I miss you, I miss you

            Mama forgive the times you cried
            Forgive me for not making right
            All of the storms I may have caused
            And I've been wrong
            Dry your eyes

                 Mama I hope this makes you smile
                 I hope you're happy with my life
                 At peace with every choice I made
                 How I've changed
                 Along the way
                 And I know you believed in all of my dreams
                 And I owe it all to you, Mama

ママ 今の僕に感謝しているよ
今ある僕以外の僕にならなかったことに感謝している
許して欲しい
口に出して言えなかった言葉
忘れてしまった時間


ママ 僕は一生忘れないよ
あなたが自分を犠牲にして僕に愛を示してくれたことを
若く未熟だった時代を思うと
人生を歩んできたうちに
僕も随分と変わった


あなたは信じ
夢を持っていたのが分った
僕が今あるのも正直に人生を送ったあなたのおかげ
それが分るまでこんなに時間がかかってごめんなさい
あなたがいなくて 寂しい


ママ 涙を流させたこと許して欲しい
間違った行いを許して欲しい
僕が起こした数々のトラブル
僕が悪かった
涙を拭いて欲しい


ママ 微笑んで欲しい
今の僕を見て幸せになって欲しい
僕の選んだ道に安心して欲しい
長いあいだに
どんなに僕は変わったか
あなたは僕の夢を信じてくれた
ママ 全てあなたのおかげだ




      The Way We Were (Barbra Streisand)

 Memories
 Light the corners of my mind
 Misty watercolor memories
 Of the way we were
 Scattered pictures
 Of the smiles we left behind
 Smiles we gave to one another
 For the way we were

         Can it be that it was all so simple then
         Or has time rewritten every line
         If we had the chanse to do it all again
         Tell me - Would we? Could we?

                Memories
                May be beautiful and yet
                What's too painful to remember
                We simply choose to forget

                      * So it's the laughter
                        We will remember
                        Whenever we remember
                        The way we were

                       Then you'll spread your wings .
                       And you'll take to the sky
                                    But till that mornin'
                                    There's nothing can harm you
                                    With daddy and mommy standing by .

           I'M IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE
        
恋の気分で・・・これも殆どの有名歌手がカバーしています

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love

        Heaven is in your eyes
        Bright as the stars we're under
        Oh, is it any wonder
        I'm in the mood for love

               Why stop to think of whether
               This little dream might fade
               We've put our hearts together
               Now we are one. I'm not afraid

                            * If there's a cloud above
                              If it should rain we'll let it
                              But for tonight forget it
                              I'm in the mood for love



                    AND I LOVE YOU SO
            ペリー・コモが歌ってヒット、綾戸智絵さんの歌もなかなかイイよ

 And I love you so, The people ask me how
 How I've lived till now, I tell them I don't know
 I guess they understand, How lonely life has been
 But life began again, The day you took my hand

       And, yes, I know how lonely life can be
       The shadows follow me and the night won't set me free
       But I don't let the evening get me down
       Now that you're around me

             And you love me too, Your thoughts are just for me
             You set my spirit free, I'm happy that you do
             The book of life is brief, And once a page is read
             All but love is dead, That is my belief

                 And, yes, I know how loveless life can be
                 The shadows follow me and the night won't set me free
                 But I don't let the evening bring me down
                 Now that you're around me

                      And I love you so, the people ask me how
                      How I've lived till now, I tell them I don't know



           UNCHAINED MELODY
        
映画音楽ではいつも人気上位にきますね

 *Oh, my love, my darling,
  I've hungered for your touch
  a long, lonely time.
  Time goes by so slowly,
  and time can do so much.
  Are you still mine?
  I need your love.
  I need your love.
  God speed your love to me.

                 Lonely rivers flow
                 to the sea, to the sea,
                 to the open arms of the sea.
                 Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me,
                 I'll be coming home, wait for me.
*


                 AUTUMN IN NEW YORK
               
ニューヨークの秋の雰囲気にひたって・・・

  Autumn in New York
  Why does it seem so inviting
  Autumn in New York
  It spells the thrill of first nighting

           Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
           In canyons of steel
           They're making me feel
           I'm home

                     It's autumn in New York
                     That brings the promise of new love
                     Autumn in New York
                     Is often mingled with pain

                               * Dreamers with empty hands
                                  May sigh for exotic lands
                                  It's autumn in New York
                                  It's good to live it again



           



                 MY LAST DATE WITH YOU
          End of the world の前日の事情を歌っているようで、ますます切ないわね

One hour and I'll be meeting you
I know you're gonnna make me blue
My heart is trembling throuth and through
'Cause I know very well, I can tell, I can tell
This will be my last date with you

          Just can't believe that this could end
          I knowm I'll never love again
          You'll ask me to be just a friend
          It's as plain as can be, I can see, I can see
          This will be my last date with you

                I know we had a quarrel
                but all sweethearts do
                I gave my love to prove to you
                That I would always love you and be true

                     I know you've met somebody new
                     You'll tell me, you and I are through
                     My plans and dreams cannot come true
                     And when you say goodby, I know I will cry
                     'Cause I know it's my last date with you


               End of the World
            切ない乙女心、胸キュンで歌いましょう

 Why does the sun go on shining
 Why does the sea rush to shore
 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 'Cause you don't love me any more

          Why do the birds go on singing
          Why do the stars glow above
          Don't they know it's the end of the world
          It ended when I lost your love

               I wake up in the morning and I wonder
               Why everything's the same as it was
               I can't understand, no, I can't understand
               How life goes on the way it does

 Why does my heart go on beating
 Why do these eyes of mine cry
 Don't they know it's the end of the world
 It ended when you said goodbye

          Why does my heart go on beating
          Why do these eyes of mine cry
          Don't they know it's the end of the world
          It ended when you said goodbye



        SUPERSTAR

 Long ago and oh so far away
 I fell in love with you before the second show
 Your guitar it sounds so sweet and clear
 But you're not really
 It's just radio
 Don't you remember you told me you love me baby
 You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
 Baby baby baby baby oh baby
 I love you I really do

          Lonliness is such a sad affair
          And I can hardly wait to be with you again
          What you say to make you come again
          Come back to me again
          And play your sad guitar
         Don't you remember you told me you love me baby
          You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
          Baby baby baby baby oh baby
          I love you I really do

                    ON LONDON BRIDGE
          ”霧のロンドンブリッジ”で流行りましたから誰でもメロディーは知っているでしょ?

I walked on. London Bridge last night
I saw you by the lamppost light
Then bells rang out in sleepy London Town
And London Bridge came tumbling down

          The sky was hidden by the mist
          But just like magic when we kissed
          The moon and stars were shining all around
          And London Bridge came tumbling down

                          *Just you and I over the river
                            Two hearts .suspended in space
                            And there so high over the river
                            A miracle took place
Two empty arms found love to hold
Two smoke rings turned to rings of gold
A simple dress became a wedding gown
when London Bridge came tumbling down
                              * Repeat
                                A wonderful miracle took place
          I bow my head in silent prayer
          And thank him for the love we share
          He blessed the night we met in London Town
          When London Bridge came tumbling down



                 SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY
           
感傷旅行にぴったりの11月です、感情こめて唄ってみませんか?

  Gonna take the sentimental journey
  Gonna sit my heart at ease
  Gonna make a sentimental journey
  To renew old memories

        Got my bag, got my reservation
        Spent each dime I could afford
        Like a child in wild anticipation
        Long to hear that all aboard

               Seven, that's the time we leave at seven
               I'll be waitin' up for heaven
               Countin' every mile of railroad track
               That takes me back

                      Never thought my heart could be so yearning
                      Why did I decide to roam
                      Gotta take this sentimental journey
                      Sentimental journey home
                      Sentimental journey home


            IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SPRING
     まだ春というには早いこの季節の女心をピッタリの表現した歌詞だと思うのですが・・・

 I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
 I'm as jumpy as the popples on a stream
 I'd say that I have spring fever
 But I know it isn't spring

      I'm stray and vaguely discontented
      Like a nightingale without a song to sing
      Oh, why should I have spring fever
      When it isn't even spring

 I keep wishing I were somewhere else
 Walking down the strange new street
 Hearing words that I had never heard
 From a man not yet to meet

      I'm as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
      I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
      I haven't seen a crocus or a rose bud
      Or a robbin on the wing

 But I feel so gay in a melanchory way
 That it might as well be spring
 And that's why I feel this way
 And yet I know it's not spring today
 But it might as well be spring

           AUTUMN LEAVES
         秋になるとよく聞く「枯葉」をしみじみ歌ってみよう

    The falling leaves
    drift by the window
    the autumn leaves
    of red and gold
           
* I see your lips
            the summer kisses
            the sunburned hands
            I used to hold
   
**Since you went away
     the days grow long
     And soon I'll hear
     old winter song
     But I miss you most of all my darling
     When autumn leaves start to fall




              TENDERLY
    
50年代、ローズマリー・クルーニーのレコードで大ヒット、今も映画やCMでもよく使われている

   The evening breeze caressed the trees
   Tenderly
   The trembling trees embraced the breez
   Tenderly
   Then you and I came wandering by
   And lost in a sigh were we

 
*  The shore was kissed by sea and mist
    Tenderly
    I can' t forget how two hearts met
    Breathlessly
    Your arms opened wide enclosed me inside
    You took my lips, you took my love
    So tenderly

  * repeat



                   YOU RAISE ME UP
            
ヒーリング系として知られるノルウェー人とアイルランド人のデュオ、シークレット・ガーデンのナンバー。
            フィギュア・スケートで用いられたりしているそうですが、イイ感じでしょうね。


   When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary
   When troubles come and my heart burdened be
   Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
   Until you come and sit a while with me

       You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
       You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
       I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
       You raise me up ....to more than I can be



                     IMAGINE
    26年前の今日、12月8日にジョン・レノンはNYの自宅前で射殺されましたが、この曲は今も生き続けています。
     イナバウアーで盛り上がったトリノ・冬季オリンピックの開会式でもオノヨーコさんがこの歌詞を世界平和の願いを
     込めて朗読されたのを覚えておられる方も多いと思います。 易しい英語ほど説得力がある良いお手本です。

  Imagine there's no heaven              
  It's easy if you try
  No hell below us
  Above us only sky
  Imagine all the people
  Living for today .......

        Imgine there's no countries
        It isn't hard to do
        Nothing to kill or die for
        And no religion too
        Imagine all the people
        Living life i peace ......

            You may say I'm a dreamer
            But I'm not the only one
            I hope someday you'll join us
            And the world will be as one

                   Imagine no possessions
                   I wonder if you can
                   No need for greed or hunger
                   A brotherhood of man
                   Imagine all the people
                   Sharing all the world ....

                           You may say I'm a dreamer
                           But I'm not the only one
                           I hope someday you'll join us
                           And the world will be as one



             TOP OF THE WORLD
       
誰でもメロディーはよく知っているカーペンターズのヒットソング

  Such a feelin' comin' over me
  There is wonder in most everything I see
  Not a cloud in the sky
  Got the sun in my eyes
  And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

  Everything I want the world to be
  Is now coming true especially for me
  And the reason is clear
  It's because you are here
  You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

 
* I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
   And the only explanation I can find
   Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
   Your love's put me at the top of the world

  Something in the wind has learned my name
  And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
  In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
  There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

  There is only one wish on my mind
  When this day is through I hope that I will find
  That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
  All I need will be mine if you are here

     ものしり英語塾4月号でジェイムス天願先生が取り上げておられるのでCAFEでもトライしましょう

    East is East and West is West
    And the wrong one I have chose
    Let’s go where I’ll keep on wearing
    Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
    Rings and things and buttons and bows

       Don’t bury me in this prairie
       Take me where the cement grows
       Let’s move down to some big town
       Where they love gal by the cut of her clothes
       And I’ll stand out in buttons and bows

  I’ll love you in buckskin
  And skirts that I’ve homespun
  But I’ll love you longer, stronger
  Where your friends don’t tote a gun

   *  My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
     And the cactus hurts my toes
     Let’s vamoose where gals keeps using
     Those silks and satins and linens that shows
     And I’m all yours in buttons and bows

* Repeat
Silks and satins and linen that shows
And I’m all yours in buttons and bows

Give me Eastern trimming where women are women
And high silk hose and peekaboo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I’m all yours in buttons and bows
Buttons and bows, buttons and bows


            My Heart Will Go On
            映画タイタニックを思い出して胸キュンで歌ってみよう

     Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you
     That is how I know you go on.

     Far across the distance and spaces between us
     You have come to show you go on.

     Near, far, wherever you are,
     I believe that the heart does go on.
     Once more you open the door
     And you're here in my heart,
     And my heart will go on and on.

     Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime,
     And never let go till we're gone.

     Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to
     In my life we'll always go on.

     Near, far, wherever you are,
     I believe that the heart does go on.
     Once more you open the door
     And you're here in my heart,
     And my heart will go on and on.

     You're here, there's nothing I fear
     And I know that my heart will go on.
     We'll stay forever this way,
     You are safe in my heart,
     And my heart will go on and on

映画音楽人気投票で1位はいつもこのピノキオの主題曲です、思わずお星様にお願いしてみたくなりますよね

   When you wish upon a star
   Makes no difference who you are
   Anything your heart desires
   Will come to you

            If your heart is in your dream
            No request in too extreme
            When you wish upon a star
            As dreamers do

   Fate is kind
   She brings to those who love
   The sweet fulfilment of
   Their secret longing

            Like the bolt out of the blue
            Fate steps in and sees you through
            When you wish upon a star
            Your dream comes true




                    YOU BELONG TO ME
                     映画「キルトに綴る愛」「モナリザ」で使われていました

  See the Pyramids along the Nile
  Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
  Just remember, darlin', all the while
  You belong to me

       See the marketplace in old Algiers
       Send me photographs and souvenirs
       Just remember when a dream appears
       You belong to me

            * I'll be so alone without you
              Maybe you'll be lonesome too and blue
              Fly the ocean in the silver plane
              See the jungle when it's wet with rain
              Just remember 'til you're home again
              You belong to me

            * repeat

                        SECRET LOVE
                        ドリス・デイの声は甘くて清潔感があって素敵       

        
Once I had a secret love
        That lived within the heart of me
        All too soon my secret love
        Became impatient to be free

              So I told a friendly star
              The way that dreamers often do
              Just how wonderful you are
              And why I'm so in love with you

      Now I shout it from the highest hills
        Even told the golden daffodils
        At last my heart's an open door
        And my secret love's no secret any more

     repeat



                      TENESSEE WALTZ
                      パティー・ペイジの声はこの曲にピッタリで泣けますね

    I was dancing with my darling
    To the Tenessee waltz
    When an old friend I happened to see
    Introduced her to my loved one
    And while they were dancing
    My friend stole my sweetheart from me

             I remember the night
             And the Tenessee waltz
             Now I know just how much I have lost
             Yes, I lost my little darling
             The night they were playing
             The beautiful Tenessee waltz

                       Yes, I lost my little darling
                       On the night they were playing
                       The beautiful Tenessee.........
                       They were playing the waltz
                       On the night I lost my love

         Georgia, Georgia
         The whole day through
         Just an old sweet song

                  A song of you
                  Comes as sweet and clear
                  As moonlight through the pines
         Other arms reach out to me
          Other eyes smile tenderly
          Still in (the) peaceful dreams I see
          The road leads back to you
                    ( I said ) Georgia, woah Georgia
                    No peace I'll find / No peace can I find / No qui sai pai
                    Just an old sweet song
                    Keeps Georgia on my mind

    2005年、キリン麦酒のCMに使われています。1956年アメリカ映画「知りすぎていた男」の主題歌

  When I was just a little girl
  I asked my mother what will I be
  Will I be pretty, will I be rich

      * Que sera sera, whatever will be will be
         The future's not ours to see

  I asked my seetheart what lies ahead
  Will we have rainbows day after day

    LULLABY OF BIRDLAND   ( サントリーウイスキーのCM)

*  Lullaby of Birdland
  That's what I always hear when you sigh
  Never in my word land
  Could there be ways to reveal
  In a phrase how I feel
  Have you ever heard two turtledoves
  Bill and coo when they love
  That's the kind of magic music
  We make with our lips when we kiss
  And there's a weepy ole willow
  He really knows how to cry
  That's how I'd cry in my pillow
  If you should tell me farewell and goodbye
  Lullaby of Birdland, whisper low
  Kiss me sweet and we'll go

  Flyun' high in birdland
  High in the sky up above
  All because we're in love

* Repeat

  Ridin' high in birdland
  High in the sky up above, in the sky up above
  All because we're in love


  I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT (’4年10月から、TVの”ブロードキャスター”のオープニング)

   I could have danced all night
   I could have danced all night
   And still have begged for more
        I could have spread my wings
        And done a thousand things
        I've never done before
   I'll never know what made it so exciting
   Why all at once my heart took flight
        I only know when he began to dance with me
        I could have danced, danced, danced all night



        MY WAY  (今から出直し英語塾でとりあげられました)

   And now the end is near
   And so I face the final curtain
   My friend I'll say it clear
   I'll state my case of which I'm certain
   I've lived a life that's full
   I've traveled each and every highway
   And more, much more than this
   I did it my way

   Yes, there were times,
   I'm sure you knew
   When I bit off more than I could chew
   But through it all, when there was doubt
   I ate it up and spit it out
   I faced it all and I stood tall
   And did it my way

   For what is a man
   What has he got
   If not himself, then he has naught
   To say the things he truly feels
   And not the words of one who kneels
   The record shows
   I took the blows
   And did it my way


        


       NIGHT AND DAY  (2004、9月までTV,ブロードキャスターのオープニング)

   Night and day, you are the one
   Only you, beneath the moon and under the sun
   Whether near to me or far
   it's no matter, darling, where you are
   I think of you, night and day

   Day and night, why is it so
   That this longing for you follows wherever I go
   In the roaring traffic sound
   In the silence of my lonley room
   I think of you, night and day

   Day and night, under the hide of me
   There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
   And this torment won't be through
   'Til you let me spend my life making love to you
   Day and night, night and day



      BLUE HAWAII    

   Night and you and blue Hawaii
   The night is heavenly
   And you are heaven to me
   Lovely you and blue Hawaii
   With all this loveliness
   There should be love

  * Come with me
   While the moon is on the sea
   The night is young
   And so are we, so are we
   Dreams come true in blue Hawaii
   And mine could all come true
   This magic night of nights with you

  * Repeat



               
           ALL OF ME

 * All of me, why not take all of me
   Can't you see, I'm no good without you
   Take my lips, I want to lose them
   Take my arms, I'll never use them
   Your goodbye left me with eyes that cry
   How can I go dear without you

   You took the part  That once was my heart
   So why not take all of me
 *repeat
   You took the best  So why not take the rest
   Baby, take all of me

   Fly me to the moon
   And let me play among the stars
   Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars

   And let me sing forever more
   Cause you are all I long for  All I worship and adore
   In other words, please be true
   In other words, I love you



             
     I Left My Heart In San Fransisco

   The loveliness of Paris seems sadly gay
   The glory that was Rome is of another day
   I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan.
   I'm goin' home to my city by the bay

   I left my heart in San Fransisco
   High on a hill it calls to me
   To be where little cab;e cars
   Climb half way to the stars
   The morning fog may chill the air I don't care
   My love waits there in San Fransisco
   Above the blue and windy sea
   When I come home to you San Fransisco
   Your golden sun will shine for me



        Tea For Two

   Oh honey, picture me upon your knee
   With tea for two and two for tea
   Just me for you, and you for me alone
   Nobody near us to see us or hear us
   No friends or relations on weekend vacations
   We won't have it known, dear
   That we own a telephone, dear

   Day will break and I'm gonna wake
   And start to bake sugar cake
   For you to take for all boys to see
   We will raise a fmily
   A boy for you and a girl for me
   Can't you see how happy we will be?



          STARDUST

   Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely night
   Dreamin' of a song, the melody haunts my reverie
   And I am once again with you
   When our love was new and each kiss an inspiration
   But that was long ago and now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

   Beside a garden walk when stars are bright
   You are in my arms, the nightingale tells his fairy tale
   A paradise where roses grew, though I dream in vain
   In my heart it will remain
   My stardust melody, the memory of love's refrain
