Nat King Cole A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square Lyrics

Last updated: 03/22/2011 11:00:00 AM

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 Londontown
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.


~interlude~




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 Fr-ed Astaire,
And like an echo far away
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square.

Nat King Cole/Beyond Categorization | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/9/2006

Nat King Cole ordinarily would be an object of envy. . . .but the dimensional nature of his musical soul is such that it places him outside(mayhaps beyond) the contemplations of acceptable critera employed to critique works of art. His music and its/his aura are of the spirit world; and how can one envy what one can not comprehend. He is that rare, so enjoy the other worldliness of his performance of A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square.
