We meet, And The Angels Sing.
The angels sing the sweetest song I ever heard.
You speak, And The Angels Sing.
Or am I breathing music into every word?
Suddenly the setting is strange,
I can see water and moonlight beaming,
Silver waves that break on some undiscovered shore;
Then suddenly I see it all change,
Long winter nights with the candles gleaming,
Thru it all your face that I adore.
You smile, And The Angels Sing.
And tho' it's just a gentle murmur at the start,
We kiss, And The Angels Sing,
And leave their music ringing in my heart!
Johnny Mercer's association with Benny
Goodman continued throughout the 1930's, when he was selected to cohost
a radio show called "Camel Caravan" that featured the King of Swing. The
association led to this classic.
